Primary School Students Visit Council Chambers 

Council was delighted to receive a presentation on the threatened Hooded Plover from Year 6 Margaret River Primary School students recently. 

Presented inside Council Chambers, they talked about the shorebirds distinctive features and behaviours, it’s threats, survival rates, importance of signage and using the beach responsibly.

Did you know?
  • Plover's breed on South West beaches between October and February
  • Approximately only 3% reach flying age 

The students made informative artwork and colourful 'hoodie shelters' that were on display in the Shire office. These were made as part of the ‘Our Patch’ program with support from Nature Conservation Margaret River Region, BirdLife Western Australia, Parks and Wildlife Service, Western Australia and the Shire. 

The students have also been learning about Federal, State and Local Government so there were lots of great questions asked at question time. 

It was a pleasure to hear these young voices inside Council Chambers and we thank them for taking the time to visit!
