School Engagement Program – Current
After the highly successful partnership with Bass Valley Primary School, the WPSP has endorsed a proposal by Dr Tim Ealey to approach other schools in the region and engage them in mangrove seedling growing and planting activities.
Currently the following six schools have been involved:
- Bass Valley Primary School
- Koo Wee Rup Primary School
- Lang Lang Primary School
- Newhaven College
- Rangebank Primary School Cranbourne North
- Fountain Gate Primary School Narre Warren

The success of the program thus far has already attracted Parklea (South East Business Park) as a sponsor for schools in the region.
