On Friday 26 July, 160 Tenison Woods College Students ranging from Years 3 to 7, were involved in the annual National Schools Tree Day.
The day, which the College has been involved in for the past 5 years, allows for people, young and old, to learn about the importance of trees to people, animals and our planet and celebrates local environments. This year, Students, Staff and Parents were fortunate to work in partnership with local organisations, OneFortyOne Plantations, Noel Barr Toyota and the Nature Glenelg Trust, planting both plantation pine and native plants near Nangwarry.
Students learnt about the importance of the timber industry in our region and about the planting of natives in a nearby revegetation zone. The groups were lucky to be blessed with great weather, along with the support of numerous staff from OneFortyOne, Noel Barr Toyota and the Nature Glenelg Trust. Each of the groups demonstrated exceptional participation with Students eager to get their hands dirty.
A big thank you to the Students, Parents and Staff who participated in the activity and the community organisations who made the day possible. We look forward to involving even more students in future years.
If you have a project which you believe Tenison Woods College students would enjoy participating in with links to sustainability and learning, please get in contact with me to discuss further.
