Exposed tree roots created a safety hazard for the heavy student traffic at St Josephâ€™s School, Port Lincoln SA, located on the Eyre Peninsula. No one knew what to do with this barren and often muddy area. What they did know was that they wanted to create an area that was hardwearing, safe for students, visually appealing and demonstrated sustainability within the school community.
A tall order? Ross Hay, OHS&W and Administrative Coordinator, St Josephâ€™s School said Enduroplankâ„¢ recycled-plastic decking, â€˜ticked all the boxesâ€™. Perfect as an outdoor learning area, a place to relax during lunchtime or for catching up with parents at school closure, this new floating deck is popular with teachers, students and parents alike.
