Planting day at Chingford CofE Federated Schools
Chingford CofE Federated Schools, was visited by representatives of payment services company Bacs to help plant trees in the school grounds. Pupils, staff and representatives of Bacs helped to plant the saplings to create wildlife habitats and encourage biodiversity. The trees are all native British species such as Rowan, Oak, Beech and Crab Apple, all grown in England from collected seed.
Chingford CofE Infant & Junior School place the educational needs and welfare of their pupils above all other considerations. Each child is valued for the uniqueness of their abilities and their individual personality. The children will have an opportunity to gain hands-on experience of how trees are planted and to learn how important trees are to the world in which we live. The new saplings will provide a perfect habitat for wildlife, promoting biodiversity and preserving the natural environment.
Bacs has teamed up with Carbon Footprint as part of their carbon management programme and with Tree Appeal, planting native broadleaf trees in schools. Bacs is sponsoring the planting of 75 trees at Chingford, demonstrating their commitment to environmental education and their aim of reducing their impact on the natural world. This is one of several plantings sponsored by Bacs who will be planting more than 400 trees in UK schools this year.
