School children learn the benefits of a leafy environment

We recently welcomed Y3 and Y4 children from Stockwell Primary School who came along to take part in our Tree Planting Event. 

Gifted to us by the Woodland Trust, a mixture of Holly, Hazel, Goat Willow and Hawthorn tree saplings were planted as part of the College’s Seeds of Change project, which aims to create a green campus and healthy lifestyle at Wilberforce.  It also includes wild flower areas to promote mental wellbeing for our students.

The Stockwell children did a wonderful job, each planting their own tree around the College field to help create a ‘Wilberforce Wild Wood’.  These are trees that they’ll be able to come back and visit, and the new woodland area should be thriving by the time they are old enough to come here to study.

That’s TV Humber were there to capture the planting and talk to some of the teachers and children – you can see their report here.
