The City of Kalamunda has recognised the achievements of Kalamunda Secondary Education Support Centre students with a Graduation Ceremony at the Zig Zag Cultural Centre. The students recently completed an environmental volunteering program in partnership with the City.

Students volunteered their time to manage 7.5ha of the Kalamunda Railway Heritage Trail Reserve between Collins Rd and Mundaring Weir Rd, in Kalamunda.

Over three school terms during 2018 the students contributed over 300 hours of volunteer time, undertaking weed control, rubbish collection path maintenance and wildlife surveys, in partnership with the City of Kalamunda and the Friends of Railway Heritage Trail Reserve.

City of Kalamunda CEO Rhonda Hardy commended the students for their commitment to the project. “The effort the students put along the Railway Heritage Trail Reserve is testament to their passion for the environment.”

“Celebrating successful partnerships like this is so important. It shows that working together we can support our youth, our community and our environment”.

Kalamunda Secondary Support Centre has been working with the students towards achieving their Duke of Edinburgh International Award – which provides youth with skills and experiences that are recognised by employers and educational institutions worldwide.

Throughout the project the students also learnt about bird identification, the importance of native wildlife, Aboriginal cultural values and had a visit from Kanyana Wildlife.

If you would like to volunteer to protect and enhance a local reserve near you, or would like to discuss a potential environmental project, please contact the City’s Parks and Environmental Services team at environment@kalamunda.wa.gov.au or call (08) 9257 9809.
