Cape Number Plates
A NEW series of local number plates are being released by Our Lady of the Cape Primary School (OLC) in Dunsborough, as a major fundraising project.
The number plates feature “CAPE” in a teal colour with the words “Wadandi Boodja – Cape Naturaliste” displayed underneath.
The acknowledgement of the Wadandi, the traditional owners of the region, was done in consultation with local Wadandi custodian Josh Whiteland, who has also been working closely with OLC to develop cultural learning opportunities for students.
“This is an important fundraiser for OLC, with funds raised going towards a new nature-based playground – something our students are very excited about”, School Advisory Council Chair, Craig Saunders said. “Interest in the CAPE number plates has been so great that we will be auctioning off a selection of numbers to give people the best chance of securing their chosen digits.”
Funds raised through number plate sales will go towards a new nature-based playground for Our Lady of the Cape Primary School with Josh providing guidance on the representation of the indigenous seasons in the playground.
Plate numbers 010 to 998 were officially released on Wednesday, 28 July at 8am and can be purchased in person on a first in, first served basis at the school, with payment required to secure your plate. No holds are available. Plates cost $300 (excluding transfer fees).
The online auction is now live, with numbers including 0-9, 00-98, 000-009 to be auctioned throughout August. To register, visit airauctioneer.com/olc
