Year 7 students spent a memorable and somewhat muddy hour planting around 60 saplings at the end of Wellbeing Wednesday on 12 January. Although very small at the moment, the saplings should be as tall, if not taller than, the students by the time they’re in the Sixth Form. Many of the students were keen to give their tree a name and mark its position with stones so they can keep an eye on its progress over the coming years.
The saplings are the first batch of 420 trees which will be planted at Woldingham through the Woodland Trust’s Green Tree Schools Award. Our newest trees include hazels, elders, blackthorns, dogwoods, crab apples, rowans, wild cherries, silver birches, goat willows and English oaks.
As the school seeks to make the most of our beautiful 700 acres and contribute to an environmentally sustainable future, these new trees are a good start.
