It is true that Western Avenue School has a logo of ducks which is pictured above. However, many people have no idea why. Western Avenue has two beautiful and "safe" courtyards. These courtyards were found many years ago in the spring by mallard ducks as they were searching for a place to nest.
The courtyard was a friendly place where the school children watched the eggs hatch. The ducks enjoyed free food and a swimming pool including a ramp for easy access for the ducklings. What a wonderful habitat for her babies. This is the reason that every year in the spring the mallards return to this safe haven to have their offspring. They are a wonderful temporary addition to the Western Avenue family. If you are around in the spring come see the ducklings for yourself.
