Here in St. Paul’s, we just love nature, and our new Green Schools and Garden Committee were so happy to get the opportunity to plant not one, but two Hazel saplings in our school grounds to mark the occasion of National Tree Day! Our new additions join the various types of trees already on our campus and our pupils learn lots of fun facts about these trees during their years in St. Paul’s and develop an appreciation for the wonderful nature around us.
In preparation for Tree Day, the children in St. Paul’s learned about how important trees are for our physical and mental health as well as their amazing benefits for the environment. They learned lots of facts about the Hazel tree too!
Have a look at our photos from the planting that took place on Thursday 5th October. The committee were amazed at how small the saplings were and are looking forward to watching them grow in the years ahead!
