Stella Maris Catholic Primary School | Point Cook
This project captured the imagination of the entire school community with huge contributions from many parents and friends of the school. Successive Stella Maris Gamily Fun Days and a $5000 CUA Community Care Grant helped generate funds for the project. Infinity Landscape Architects’ Scott Munro worked closely with the school principal and school partners to design and implement a major landscaped swale system through the school grounds. The meandering swale receives water from a section of the school roof as well storm water run-off from the grounds.
The landscape design incorporates interesting play elements including pathways, pylon bridges, pole forest with bird boxes and a pumping station. The landscape design has been incorporated into the School’s Sustainability Learning curriculum and the children have been involved in the design and installation of artworks to the straw-bale rendered seats and bird boxes.
