Tree day

Thursday 4th October was national tree day. As part of this we received a  Guelder Rose Sapling to plant. Junior Infants, Senior Infants 3rd and 4th class came together on Friday to plant the sapling in a pot. We are going to plant this in the school grounds at a later date.  We identified the different parts of a tree, what trees need to grow and looked up what our sapling will look like when  it is fully grown.  The students of the week from each class helped to plant the sapling. This is a step towards our Biodiversity Green Flag.
