On the last day of school for a while, our students took the opportunity to invest in the future. Led by the school's Environmental Council, dozens of students joined in with a mass tree planting exercise on the school grounds. More than 400 native saplings were planted on an area of ground on the edge of the school site. The Environmental Council's plan is that – eventually – a small wooded area with a series of paths through it will become a habitat for wildlife and a nature trail for future students at the school. The trees were provided free of charge by the Woodland Trust as part of its 'free trees for schools and communities' scheme. We hope that, when grown, they will enhance the environment for our students, staff and wildlife. What a fitting way to spend the last day at school during what is an unprecedented period of change. Thank you to everyone who helped to plant our wood.
