This week in Year 6 was incredibly important for our pupils – they would be leaving a legacy. As I’m sure you are aware, this year we have cut down many trees outside the front of our school. We did this due to the trees deteriorating and unfortunately dying. However, this was an exciting opportunity to replant saplings of native trees such as dogwood, cherry and hazelnut trees. This will not be as tall as our previous trees, but instead, will create a hedgerow to develop the biodiversity of our area. To help with the aesthetics, Year 6 also planted daffodil bulbs to be seen at the front of the wall.
This was an opportunity to leave a lasting legacy at St Joseph’s so that in 5 years, the children can return and look at what they created that cold December afternoon. We are so proud of our pupils for helping the eco-life of our community!
