A group of the school�s Year 3 and 4 students took part in a number of activities throughout the day to learn about the important role trees play in the environment.
A number of students also helped to plant a donated Silver Princess tree, one of a vulnerable species usually only found in the Wheatbelt region.
Principal Janine Bersan said the event was a great way to show how committed the school was to developing a sustainable environment.
�Many lessons had a relationship to trees throughout the week and students built a knowledge that trees are vital to our existence; they provide oxygen, store carbon, stabilise the soil and give life to the world�s wildlife and we need to promote and look after trees,� she said.
�School Tree Day was very important to our school as it inspired and educated our students about our unique land.�
Richmond Primary School students also participated in a National Tree Day event.
