STUDENTS from Quinns Rocks Primary School celebrated Planet Ark’s Schools Tree Day on July 26.

Staff from Bunnings Warehouse in Clarkson joined students for the hands-on tree planting activity, where children learnt about gardening and sustainability while reconnecting with nature.

The hardware store manager Dominic Walsh said the team enjoy going to different schools every year to plant trees with the students.

“Schools Tree Day is always a great opportunity for our team members to roll up their sleeves and encourage kids to get into gardening and learn about their environment,” he said.
