The Year 2 students returned to the Camp Road site where they had removed large Coast Wattles on World Environment Day site to plant, stake, mulch, water and name their own tree.

Jack shows how to plant a tree

Manna Gum and Swamp Gum seedlings were soon in the ground, and the children were very keen to write their names on a stake at their own tree that they will hopefully nurture over the years.

This is my tree

The activity was then extended into a celebration for National Tree Day - talking about environmental weeds and why we 'attacked' the Coast Wattle, the importance of trees in the environment, Australia's large numbers of Eucalypts and Wattles and how to tell the difference between some of them.

Trees help us in many ways.  Apple trees provide fruit for us to enjoy.
