This school is on a ridge top, with the Berowra Bushland Valley Reserve a short
walk away. The Reserve has small drainage creeks and ephemeral water courses running
down the bushy, sandstone hillsides into feeder creeks that run into the main Berowra
Creek catchment below. Beside some sections of the ephemeral water courses, the
endangered Red-crowned toadlet can be found - a small, beautifully coloured frog
which hides under leaf litter and rocks.
Some hanging swamps can be found along the fire trail tracks, which are breeding
sites for local frog species such as Peron's Tree Frog, the Common Eastern Froglet
and the Striped Marsh Frog. There is a section of bush behind the school where local
bush regenerators have cleared weeds from a section of bushland which will be suitable
for the school's FROG ZONE. The Principal and staff of the school and parent community
are very enthusiastic about the prospect of a wetland area and a local excavator,
Rob Speters, has offered his services voluntarily to do the initial digging and
possible rock removal. There are some trees and logs nearby and large rocks at the
sides already there, suitable both as vantage points to view the pond and as hiding
places for frogs and reptiles.
