The main entrance to Jindalee State School from Burrendah Road has undergone a transformation in recent months with the changing landscape of our school. The tall trees that were causing plumbing and drainage problems were removed and have now been replaced with shrubs and grass trees and the area has also had seating added to provide an attractive and functional entrance as well as a rest area during the day.
Over the next several months. the plants will become established and we will see them begin to grow during the summer months. In the space of twelve months, we expect to see the area well covered and some of the plants will eventually grow to two metres tall and others will provide good ground cover. The landscaping was carried out by Jindalee Parent, Jo Wake, and her company Lime Design.
The cost of the project has been funded through the Jindalee State School P&C Association. Thank you to everyone involved in the project including our schools officer, Ken Hacker, who was involved in the project design and will ensure the garden is well looked after.
A Clever Future Today
The Jindalee State School vision is “Creating a Clever Future Today”. The purpose of our school vision is to allow us to focus on what it is we are achieving every day at our school. In 2009, our school community made a declaration that we would use innovation, creativity and a futures focus to become the community of tomorrow. Our vision is that community of tomorrow in action. Each day we have the choice about how we will create that clever future for ourselves, each other, our school and our community. At Jindalee we are focused on teaching and learning. Education is the path to the future for all of our students. By creating opportunities for students to use modern technology in learning through the “bring your own device” (BYOD) project, we are demonstrating our futures orientation. Our vision is something that we can choose to renew every day. Students, staff and parents can ask, “What am I going to do today and how will that create a clever future for me, my family, my friends and my community? ”
