Pupils get plant­ing

Western Suburbs Weekly - - News -

STU­DENTS at Ned­lands Pri­mary School have planted seeds as part of Schools Tree Day.

Stu­dents aged nine and 10 planted more than 1000 na­tive seedlings on the fore­shore at Point Res­o­lu­tion Re­serve in Dalkeith last week.

City of Ned­lands Mayor Max Hip­kins said the stu­dents had given the fore­shore a re­ju­ve­na­tion boost.

“The part­ner­ship be­tween the City and lo­cal schools is strong and in­te­gral for as­sist­ing the City in re­ju­ve­nat­ing lo­cal bush­land,” he said.

“Each year the lo­cal schools as­sist the city’s en­vi­ron­men­tal con­ser­va­tion team to plant na­tive seedlings at difference ar­eas across the city. The ex­er­cise teaches chil­dren about the im­por­tance of pro­tect­ing and re­gen­er­at­ing our nat­u­ral bush­land.”
