Park Primary is a PRU that supports 42 children with social, emotional and behavioural difficulties that are not able to access mainstream education provision. They received 50 tree saplings from ERS to help set up their own School Tree Nursery in March 2016. Deputy Headteacher David Kiss has kindly provided this update for us.
“We absolutely loved planting the saplings and learning about what was needed to keep the trees protected to help them grow and stay strong.
This allowed a lot of the children to gain a practical ‘real life’ experience when planting the trees which was then followed up by class based work learning about plants and trees and how they function. We are hoping that we can create a lovely perimeter with the trees that grow and use the outside space for outdoor learning experiences in the future. Thank you so much for giving us this opportunity and we hope that we can be involved in this in future years.”
