School’s environmental team working on new garden area

AS the winter approaches, the Woodroffe School’s Environmental Action Team (EAT) team have been out and about working on a new garden space that is being developed within the school grounds.

This is a challenging project but there is no doubt that the opened space already looks much improved on what was there before.

The students have also been busy planting trees as a measure to combat climate change.  This is part of a national programme by the Woodland Trust to plant trees across the country in order to tackle rising carbon dioxide levels in the atmosphere.

Trees are an excellent addition to the school site and will provide a new niche for birds, a future habitat for insects and shade for students decades from now.

Projects for the new year will include reducing and recycling plastics as well as car sharing schemes.
