Over the years at BPPS we have aimed to create gardens that will promote the natural biodiversity of our area. We aim to create a wildlife corridor to link the area of Koonung Creek to the school.
We have created and maintained the following gardens to promote biodiversity:2010 - Habitat Gardens at Ruth St entrance2011 - Creation of a River bed outside the Ruth St portables2014 - She-oak grove and planting along the banks of the oval2015 - Amphitheatre Garden created on the top oval2016 - Green Day for Peace Graden. Beds to prevent mulch run off from 5/6 playground2017 - Rehabilitation of the eroded area around the bottom oval water tank and creation of the Peace Place Garden2018 - Regenerating the garden along the Almond St frontage with plants indigenous to the area.
