St Mary's School

"The children are at the heart of everything we do".

On Thursday the 8th March, St Mary’s Eco Warriors visited Conrhenny Community Woodland to take part in the 2018 Tree’s for Life event. As a school, we have taken part in this event before, however 2018 marks the 10th anniversary.

Although the weather was quite cold, we had a fantastic afternoon getting muddy and planting new trees with the help of the Forestry staff. Well done to the children who got as far as planting 3 trees! You were excellent diggers! We were able to write our own names on the trees and hope we will be able to visit again once they have grown a little.

Many thanks again to all the adult helpers that came along, many of who, spent most of the afternoon digging deep enough holes for our pupils. Also, a big thanks to the Department of Environment, Food and Agriculture for hosting this event.
