Newtown helps plant 1000 trees in 1000 days!

 

Newtown C of E Primary School has helped to kick start Gosport Borough Council's initiative of planting 1000 trees in 100 days. 

 

The Leader of Gosport Borough Council, Cllr Mark Hook, has called for 1000 trees to be planted in 1000 days to help tackle climate change and make local neighbourhoods greener. Following a successful grant application to the Woodland Trust, Newtown C of E Primary School received 185 trees to be planted on the school site to enhance their outdoor learning provision and to provide a Forest School for the children to learn about the environment and to encourage wildlife. 

 

Cllr Kathy Jones, Mayor of Gosport, visited Newtown C of E Primary School today to visit the trees and the Forest School area that is being developed by the school for the children and local community to enjoy for many years to come. 

 

In addition, the Mayor was also shown an area of the school site that the school would like to redevelop into a pond area to further enhance the children's learning and understanding through science and natural history. The school would like to know of any local business who could help by donating resources and/or time to build a pond for the local community. If you can please get in touch via the school on 02392 584048. 

 

Emma Howlett, Headteacher said "Trees and the growth of our Forest School are a vital part of our local landscape. Through our curriculum, we teach our children to have an increasing awareness of the importance of wildlife and the need to protect our planet. Being part of Gosport Borough Council's 1000 trees in 1000 days initiative is something that we wanted to get involved in to support our local community whilst promoting the importance of protecting our local environment".
