STUDENTS at Takari Primary School in Balcatta got their hands dirty last week as part of Planet Ark’s National Tree Day.
Deputy principal Paula Yost said the school had taken part in the day for the past several years and had help from Stirling councillor Andrew Guilfoyle.
“With the generous support from Big Rock Toyota, students from pre-primary to Year 6 planted a variety of native trees around the school to sustain the environment and provide habitats for insects and birds,” she said.
“After all their hard work students were rewarded with a delicious sausage sizzle lunch.
“Students have been learning about the importance of trees not only for animals but for our own wellbeing.”
