On Saturday February 15th 2003, a group of parents collected spades and pickaxes, and met in the school grounds at 10.30am. It was a biting cold day, but the sunshine was encouraging.

The Parent’s Association had purchased numerous native trees in early February, and planting soon commenced. Tea and brown bread were served to the able-bodies “workers” and soon the area was covered with oak, ash, birch, willow, and holly trees.

On February 19th 2003 each class was involved in planting a tree. 
We appreciate the work of the Parent’s Association in bringing this project to fruition. The children have been asked to look after the woodland and to treat the baby trees with tender loving care.

Next week is “National Tree Week,” and we hope this venture will heighten the children’s awareness of the beauty in the local environment.
