420 trees planted

We received 420 trees from the woodland trust to plant a new wildlife corridor around the green space at St John’s School.

Some of our saplings before planting

The saplings included native hazel, crab apple, downy birch, hawthorn, holly, goat willow. All of which will create the new hedgerow for wildlife to live in and move safely around our site.

All classes were involved in planting and we had some great volunteers as well as the staff getting stuck in. It was a thoroughly enjoyable exhausting day and all the children left happy to have been involved.
