Woodland Trust Award for Surfleet Primary School
Surfleet Primary School has achieved a Woodland Trust gold award for getting involved in green activities including tree planting, visiting a local woodland, reducing carbon emissions and recycling.
The Green Tree Schools initiative, which has seen nearly 12,000 schools sign up since it was launched in 2008, offers the opportunity to bring the great outdoors, wildlife and green issues into the classroom.
Schools win awards for participating in green activities, which include tree planting, reducing carbon emissions and recycling. Surfleet school has planted new trees in their school grounds, visited local woods, reduced their carbon emissions and joined in various other Woodland Trust activities.
The school is now working on its Platinum Award and hoping to become the Green Tree School Ambassador in South Holland.
The Woodland Trust’s vision is to see a UK rich in native woods and trees for people and wildlife. The charity is dedicated to creating new woodland with help from communities and schools, and protecting and restoring ancient woodland for future generations to cherish.
The Green Tree Schools Award is free for schools to take part in, and the Woodland Trust is also offering free packs of trees to schools. Find out how your school can get involved at woodlandtrust.org.uk/schools
