Dawesville Catholic College recently had 2 x 3 bed systems installed in a mesh enclosure to control their environment. It was a precision operation with the installation coinciding between the first and final stage of the construction process.

This system was installed in October which is a great time to establish new plantings

The College had organised the enclosure with someone else as part of many stages of their project eg vegetable gardens etc.

We got a look at these systems today and the shadehouses are covered in shadecloth, with a bluemetal floor base which all looks really good. I forgot to get out my camera and snap some pics, too busy looking at their trout and perch, sorry :oops:
It was about 2.30 and we hadn't had lunch, so that's my excuse.
Anyway we were there to install another system. Apparently it is too far for the year 1 children to walk, they are too tired when they get there and they lose them along the way. So we were there to do a courtyard system which will be just for them.

I had to retrain Joel in regards to gravel washing as you will soon see. He was the designated driver and Joker came along for the ride, don't think he was too happy about that really until he saw kangaroos, that was his highlight.[

There was a little site preparation to be undertaken and that was done by the headmaster after we arrived. As you can see the flags are blowing in a horizontal position due to the galeforce winds.

It was a wild ride with blustery winds, signs down and trees and branches everywhere. We saw a heap of pink and grey galahs grazing on the lawns and when we were leaving we caught this pair of kangaroos just coming out of the bushes, so naturally we stopped, dead, in the middle of the road and took a photo :)

Yea, I was quite offended with that blatant use of the bird out in the open like that. :wink:
