The Dales School, Blyth

The Dales school received 50 tree saplings from ERS to set up their own School Tree Nursery in January 2015. Teaching Assistant Steve O’Mara has provided this update and photos from their planting day:

“Many thanks for the trees. We had a tree planting day¬† on the 19th of January, when every class in the school took part in planting trees around the school grounds, despite the wind, rain, and cold temperatures. The day served as a good introduction to many of the students as to the value of trees in their community, and why we should be planting them in the school. They also had a fun break from their regular lessons!”
