National Tree Week
We, here in St. Tiarnach’s, have been very lucky to receive 14 native trees to plant here in our school environment! We have 4 different types of trees which are planted throughout the school grounds- Maple, Birch, Wild Cherry and Hazel.
ABP Food Group have been kind enough to donate these trees to us as part of their sustainable living initiative.
Each tree represents a different classroom in our school- which means each class will be able to enjoy watching their very own tree grow and mature as they progress through the school and, indeed, beyond!!
Picker Pals-School Project where pupils were chosen each week to take home litter pickers and clean up litter in their local community area
