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 Wadandi custodian Josh Whiteland, who has worked closely with OLC to develop cultural learning opportunities for students.

School Advisory Council chair Craig Saunders said this was an important fundraiser for OLC, with funds raised going towards a new nature-based playground.

"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," he said.

Plate numbers 010 to 998 will be officially released on Wednesday, July 28 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.

The online auction will launch at the same time, with numbers including 0-9, 00-98, 000-009 to be auctioned throughout August. More information will be made available through the school's Facebook page in July.
