St Thomas More School celebrates the Jubilee Woods Campaign
Pupils from St Thomas More Catholic School in Buxton have planted 12 coniferous trees in the school grounds in celebration of the Queen’s Jubilee and FSC Friday.
FSC Friday is an event organised by the Forest Stewardship Council as a global celebration of the world’s forests and aims to highlight the importance of responsible forest management.
The event, sponsored by the SCA Group and Arnold Laver, involved the pupils learning about the need to look after and replenish our forests and by being able to get ‘hands on’ by planting trees for the enjoyment of future generations.
St Thomas More School is working hard to promote sustainability and has recently held an Environment Day, when many of the pupils participated in activities such as, willow weaving, butter making, moorland conservation, bird box and bird feeder construction and waste management projects. All had a thoroughly enjoyable and interesting day which raised awareness of the issues affecting the environment in which we live.
The school is also being sponsored by local award winning sustainable company Buxton Press who are helping with cardboard waste recycling.
