Meeting the Premier

WA Premier and two Helena College studentsYear 8 Andrew Wallace and his brother Ben (Year 11) had a special meeting with the Premier in August. The meeting was organised by Member for Kalamunda, Matthew Hughes who invited both boys to the opening of his new office so they could meet Premier McGowan. The Premier had received an environmental report written by Andrew and wanted to chat to him about it.

Andrew spent three years researching and documenting flora and fauna near his Stoneville home. Through his study of the 56 acre site, Andrew found that Marri and Jarrah trees were a prime feeding and breeding habitat for Endangered Black Cockatoos and a nesting pair of Wedge-tailed Eagles, with a diverse bird fauna of 77 identified species.

He was praised for his high level of observational diligence in the report, ‘Biodiversity records from native forest and cleared pasture adjacent to the proposed North Stoneville development site (Structure Plan 34) 2017-2020.’
