Land for Wildlife
Gib Gate is designated a Land for Wildlife site by the Wingecarribee Shire Council, with the School part of the Community Environment Network.
On our 10-acre campus, Gib Gate students from Preschool to Year 6 care for the natural habitat and native animals that also call Gib Gate home. Working closely with local community Aboriginal and Landcare groups, Gib Gate students from Preschool to Year 6 are creating a habitat to support the regeneration of native flora and fauna, including:
- Planting trees as part of the local 'Glossies in the Mist' project to support the local population of endangered Glossy Black Cockatoos
- Creating an Aboriginal Bush Tucker Garden
- Constructing and installing microbat nesting boxes
- Constructing and installing native bird nesting boxes
- Planting trees as part of the local Koala Wildlife Corridor project
