Thanks to the Eco-Action Taskforce at Ysgol Clywedog 250 trees have been planted in the school grounds as part of the Woodland Trust’s Big Climate Fightback.
It’s part of a project that’s already running at the school which is aiming to create an outdoor learning space, woodland and allotment.
Head of Geography, Nicholas Brown, said: “It was a huge effort by everyone to plant 250 trees but it will be worth it. The young people are very keen to improve the environment in which we live and learn and we are always keen to support their aspirations. I’d like to thank everyone who took part in the planting which will be appreciated by generations to come.”
Head of Environment and Technical at Wrexham Council, Darren Williams, said: “Everyone is to be commended for their commitment to improving their natural environment. The trees should mature over time to provide an extremely beautiful environment for people to enjoy and ecologically diverse habitat for wildlife.”
The trees were supplied by the Woodland Trust and the Oak trees from Mitego Coffee in Chester.
The tree planting was the final activity done by the school’s Eco-Action Taskforce to achieve their Gold level ‘Green Trees School Award’.SIGN ME UP NOW
