Tree Planting Brightens up School Grounds 

Date: Wednesday, January 23, 2008

School children from St Matthew's Bloxham C. Of E. Primary School will be busy planting trees in their school grounds on the 30th January 2008.


Groundwork Coventry and Warwickshire have kindly donated £500 to Warwickshire Wildlife Trust to help schools across the region set up their Forest Schools.


The interest in Forest Schools in Warwickshire and Coventry has been huge in schools recently, due to a new training partnership programme lead by Warwickshire Wildlife Trust.  Now, thanks to Ground Work, newly developed Forest Schools have been allocated a number of tree saplings which will truly make a difference to their barren School grounds.


Sarah Klaes, Senior Forest School Co-ordinator for Warwickshire Wildlife Trust says,

"Trees are a real boost for school grounds. A number of employers from education settings are currently going through Forest School training and are currently thinking of ways to improve the grounds. This grant is much appreciated. It has given a much needed lift to the new Forest School leaders and will hopefully encourage the children to appreciate the natural world around them."
