On Monday July 20, forty Year 3-5 students and their teachers travelled by bus to Gregory's Quarry near Balgowan to plant 150 native trees.
Working in groups of two and three, the students eagerly—and carefully—removed seedlings from their casings planted them in the rocky ground, added fertiliser and finished with a protective tree guard.
The children are to be complimented on their enthusiasm, care and behaviour.
Thank you to the CYP Council for organising the day, the Council Workers who helped the students, the 3-5 teachers Anna Gubbin and Dot Jones for their assistance and to Trevor Allen for driving the bus. We look forward to seeing the trees growth over the next few years.
