766 Ellenbrook Primary School Children broke a Guinness World Record by creating a human forest. It was all part of a wider effort to involve children in a creative endeavor to get their imaginations and energy inspired and to promote reading. Author Andy Griffith, who originally suggested the idea and has written a book called The 52 Story Treehouse, said it was great to see the tree theme and record attempt captivating young minds. Chris Sheedy, an official representative for Guinness flew in to Perth to witness the attempt and make it official.

It’s great that Ellenbrook is growing and thriving but with growth comes some issues with traffic congestion and the need for more infrastructure and services. So i’ts good to know that the following will be occuring soon.

Gnangara Rd is closer to becoming a dual roadway. Now that the excision of 19.8ha of state forest has passed both houses of Parliament all that is needed is a notice to be published in the Government Gazzette and then the works can start. The road will become a dual roadway between Drumpellier Dr and Alexander Dr. It is expected the construction will commence this year and be completed in 2016.
 
Anybody who has driven down Main Street outside of Ellenbrook Secondary College during school starting and closing times will be aware of the hazard it has been posing to students. After a spate of near misses and a low speed collision between a student and a a car earlier this year, the school is set to get flashing LED school zone signs and an application is in the pipeline for two manned school crossings. Hopefully this will reduce the risk of a more serious accident.

Ellenbrook is Australia’s most awarded new town. It is the winner of 30 state and national awards.

Why all the success? As becomes evident from these photos it is due to a collaborative approach to it’s initial and ongoing design from Developers, Planners, Architects and Builders.

These parties all worked together to create seven self sustainable communities (also know as townships). Each neighborhood has it’s own center that can be reached on foot within 10 minutes from any house.

Now an urban Town Center boasts an art gallery, restaurants, tavern, and shopping center with 80 shops including one of the largest Woolworths in the state. And the amount of open space and parkland around every corner is breathtaking!
