NORTH Cottesloe Primary School students lent a hand when 60 trees were planted on the railway reserve next to the school by Cottesloe Council on Tuesday .

“It’s part of a program of rejuvenation and revegetation of Cottesloe, and we wanted to include the primary school’s students,” Mayor Jo Dawkins said.

The trees donated to the school from the council included banksias, grevilleas, eucalypts and hakeas.

Mrs Dawkins said the next rejuvenation project to be done by the council is likely to be work with Cottesloe Coastcare to restore sandunes at the end of Napier Street on September 4.

At nearby Cottesloe Primary School, a new $1.1 million administration block was announced by the State Government last week.

“The new building will provide staff with a better area to carry out their important work, and it will also result in pleasant areas for staff to meet with parents and students,” Cottesloe MLA Colin Barnett said.
