Plant­ings cul­mi­nate

The Tatura Guardian - - People -

All Tatura Pri­mary School stu­dents have now par­tic­i­pated in the One Tree Per Child global plant­ing ini­tia­tive af­ter a spe­cial ses­sion was held at the school last week.

‘‘It was a tremen­dous suc­cess,’’ prin­ci­pal Su­sanne Gill said.

Ms Gill said the stu­dents were in­cred­i­bly lucky to have some great helpers on the day who they thanked very much.

‘‘We had Terry Court here all day help­ing to teach the chil­dren all about tree plant­ing and sus­tain­abil­ity,’’ she said.

‘‘And the Hall fam­ily were here all day to help where ever it was needed.’’

Ms Gill also gave a spe­cial­men­tion to staff mem­bers Mrs Cros­bie, Mrs Meka and Mr Cowan.

‘‘(They) stayed out­side and co-or­di­nated the mulching, wa­ter­ing, rak­ing, dig­ging and plant­ing,’’ she said.

The school con­ducted the plant­ing ses­sion af­ter stu­dents at­tended one held at Lake Bartlett re­cently — their first taste at get­ting their green thumbs into ac­tion.
