Every Wednesday morning for the past three years four students from
Special Education Unit get their hands dirty on the Town
Common. The students work alongside the Common Interest Team, a voluntary
group who regularly get together to undertake environmental activities
on the Town Common. Managed by the Conservation
Volunteers, the students of Heatley High plant trees, collect seeds
and undertake various duties in flora and fauna surveys.
Heatley High School also fields students to assist in Louisa Creekwatch
Creekwatch is managed by Conservation
Volunteers and funded by Townsville City Council. It forms part of
the TCC Urban Stormwater Quality Management Plan (USQMP)
education/awareness of urban stormwater program. Up to 10 students are
involved in the Louisa Creekwatch program every Tuesday. Activities include
water quality monitoring, weed removal and other activities.
