Tree Planting

 

On Thursday 22nd February pupils from The Study School in Thetford Road New Malden took the classroom outdoors as they planted free trees from the Woodland Trust with the Deputy Mayor of Kingston, Cllr Mike Head in Green Lane Recreational Park, New Malden.

The school successfully applied for a Copse pack of 30 silver birch, rowan and wild cherry trees from the Trust after hearing about the scheme from a TV advert

 “The students get a sense of purpose, a sense of ownership, they are doing something for themselves, their school, their local community and they really enjoy that. We decided to plant the trees in Green Lane as a memorial to those who died in World War 1 and we were lucky to have Cllr Ken Smith who is also Chairman of Malden and Coombe Royal British Legion, to talk to the children about the significance of World War 1 and the work the British Legion does to support veterans. “
