The GK Gully is located next to the Science Room and is a wonderful resources for students and teachers to use in their environmental explorations. After 10 years of hard work, what was once a dry, forgotten dust bowl in the corner of the school is now a rich environment of biodiversity including a pond, worm farms, composts, hothouse, rain tank and vegetable patches surrounded by native and indigenous plants. The students enjoy their gully time very much and find it a peaceful place to stop and enjoy the natural environment. In conjunction with Banyule Council, students regularly engage in planting indigenous shrubs and plants throughout the school. Every Monday, the Gully Club meets to maintain and continue to improve our wonderful Gully.
