Western Suburbs Weekly - - Street Watch -

COTTES­LOE Pri­mary School stu­dents got their hands dirty for the 20th an­nual Planet Ark Schools Tree Day on July 24.

Bun­nings Ware­house Cottes­loe staff helped stu­dents from all year groups plant more than 300 na­tive seedlings.

Na­tional Tree Day man­ager Deb­bie Agnew said the Schools Tree Day was the largest na­ture care event in Aus­tralian schools.

“Schools can beau­tify and green their grounds, start a ver­ti­cal gar­den or veg­etable patch, grow seeds in their class or go on a bush walk, with our les­son plans aligned with the ex­ist­ing cur­ricu­lum,” Ms Agnew said.

Bun­nings Ware­house Cottes­loe com­plex man­ager Matt Smith said the team en­joyed get­ting out to dif­fer­ent schools ev­ery year to plant trees with the stu­dents.

“We al­ways look for­ward to dig­ging in with the kids and do­ing some­thing pos­i­tive for the en­vi­ron­ment,” Mr Smith said.
