Planting party at Harpers Island
One School Story: School Tree-Planting Day in Seagrange Park on Wednesday, January 31st: St. Laurence NS
“We planted native tree plantations at the front of our Senior Building in 1999 and our Junior Building in 2015. When we ran out of space on our school grounds we teamed up with 8 other schools and planted 300 trees in Seagrange Park, Baldoyle (adjacent to the Senior Building) at our “Tree Academy” on a January Saturday in 2017, the first one to be held in Ireland. In 2018 we ran a Tree Planting Day to give all the children in the school an opportunity to plant a tree and in addition will send children to present to a further Saturday Tree Academy in neighbouring Malahide. We worked in collaboration with other schools, and hope to plant a total of 3,000 trees this time, one for every primary school in Ireland! The children plant their trees in Seagrange Park where we hope they will be able to enjoy them for years to come. We are working on this project in partnership with Fingal County Council who will be providing help by preparing the land for planting, advising us and they are even sponsoring trees. Our project will also link with children in over 80 countries around the world as part of a UNEP-backed project, “Plant-for-the-Planet”.
