Readers of the Cairns Post may be aware of a recent story reporting calls for the Federal Government to continue funding of containment and eradication measures for Yellow Crazy Ants (YCA) in our region.
From the outset I want to reassure the College community that the challenge presented by Yellow Crazy Ants is well managed at our school. We have ensured our construction contractors have followed Wet Tropic Management Authority (WTMA) protocols with regard to vehicle movements and containment of soil and vegetation on site. Further, the area we now occupy for the first stage of our school has no evidence of YCA activity and we are vigilantly monitoring to detect any signs of YCA presence. We believe we are effectively managing the safety and wellbeing of students, staff and visitors to our school, notwithstanding the presence of YCA in nearby Stony Creek.
