    A big thanks to the students from North Perth Primary School for joining Mayor Emma Cole yesterday to imagine the future of Vincent!

    The amount of enthusiasm and ideas the students came up with was incredible. Some ideas included:

    • Solar powered cars
    • Electric shoes - like hover boards but built into shoes, which charge via walking so it encourages more walking too
    • Having a wall mural painted in every street of the street name
    • More trees
    • BMX tracks around the edges of public open space

    A really big thank you to North Perth Primary School for having us.
