The wait is over… the trees arrived during our Easter holidays. A welcome surprised on our first day back at school. There had been a lot of buzz about the arrival of the new trees. Our original plan was to have the Young Tree Champion plant the trees however we felt was it better to get the trees in the ground asap. On a sunny day after the school day, we had a team of teachers from the Social Subjects plant two of the trees at the front of the school. While the other two trees were planted by two senior pupils in the school ground near the motorway slip road. We thought this may be a good activity to compare the effects of pollution had on our new trees.
