In a collaborative effort with the school community and local business, NBP designed and constructed a masterplan for Boddington District High School, to provide engaging spaces for kids ranging in age from kindy through to year 10. Nature spaces were created in 3 separate areas of the school, offering different experiences in each. 

A Yarning Circle has been established as a meeting place and outdoor learning area, featuring a rock fire pit and Indigenous bush tucker plantings by the school. The space was designed in consultation with Deb Thorn on behalf of local Indigenous elder Greg Thorn.

The eucalyptus grove features a rope walk, mini humpback climber, cubby building, log abacus and log drum, encouraging active play under natural shade.

The paved courtyard area, known by the children as the fairy garden, has been given a natural makeover, with ground logs, rocks and carved top stumps framing the pathways beneath the existing natural foliage.

Newmont Mining generously supplied and delivered to site all of the large rocks and natural timbers. Newmont also provided accommodation at their mine camp for the NBP construction team.
