Cott kids get hands dirty
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.
