The arrival of an 82 metre crane on the Innovation Centre construction site created a great deal of excitement in Loreto Kirribilli Junior School. The crane, which has a 55 metre arm, is required to transfer materials and equipment onto the Loreto Kirribilli site and will be utilised for the duration of the build.

Junior School students were invited to submit their entry to a ‘Name the Crane’ competition and explain their choice in 25 words or less.

More than 250 entries were received and ‘Lottie’, put forward by Year 6 student Lucy, was selected as the winner following a vote by students and staff.

“I chose Lottie as the Bob the Builder Crane is called Lofty. In the interest of empowering women, I did the female version of Lofty which is Lottie,” explained Lucy.
