STUDENTS, parents and teachers from Clarkson Primary School dug in to planting activities on National School Tree Day last month.
Parent volunteer Tammy King said the July 29 event was an opportunity for students to plant and care for seedlings as they grow in a hands-on experience that also beautified the school grounds.
“Students planted 127 native trees, shrubs and groundcovers across the school grounds,” she said.
“Tuarts were planted along the boundary fence, bush tucker plants contributed to the Indigenous Heritage Garden and everlastings were planted in the Pre-Primary nature play space, with many more tube stock planted for students to nurture.”
The City of Wanneroo, Bunnings, Grants Empire, Mel Pfeiffer and Kara Isles donated plants. Volunteers included Lara Edwards, Teniell Njiric, Manja Schachenmayr and Dannielle Gardner.
