In 2015, Collgar financially supported a plan created by Nature Play WA which was based on the designs of Year 4 & 5 students from St Marys School. In 2017 a partnership between the Shire and Central Regional TAFE was established to enable students to enrol in a Certificate II in Leadership so that as well as gaining work experience they had the opportunity to acquire a qualification. During November 2017, Lenihan Park, the nature park designed and adopted by St Mary’s Primary School students, was officially opened.
This project demonstrates the power of community collaboration.
Collgar donated almost $25,000 in total to the project since inception.
