On Wednesday 9th March, the Mayor of Bridlington attended a tree planting ceremony at our school, where we planted five fruit trees towards our commitment to increasing nature within our school. This is part of our Young Tree Champions involvement – we chose to plant fruit trees (apples, quinces and plums) to provide fruit for the school, in addition to the other benefits (wildlife habitats, oxygen, reducing carbon dioxide, good for mental health) that trees can bring.
We were really pleased to also be joined by Burlington Infants, Burlington Pre-School, 9th Priory Brownies and Guides and also New Pasture Lane Primary – each group planted a fruit tree to create a long-lasting community project, showing how schools and organisations can collaborate together to improve their local environment. After the planting, we toured the nature areas of our school, beginning with our Garden area. We all had ‘Find It’ quizzes to see how many of the pictures we could find around the school grounds.
