They were planted in an area in the school grounds so we can eventually increase our Forest School site. We are grateful for the trees and we are fortunate to be part of this programme.”

We are in a new building and are waiting for our remaining outside space to be completed so that we can plant the rest of the trees in our newly formed grounds. I will keep you updated.”
