Our lovely NYLG children plant trees

7th Feb 2024

After an amazing worship on Monday led by Pola, who explained very confidently to the whole school the importance of trees in our world and for our earth  and why we need them to encourage climate change, our four NYLG children (National Younger Leadership Groups) Pola, Asher, Jackson and Kara, who are taking part in the project this year, planted their fruit trees alongside the Community Building. 

As part of the project, to empower the children to use their voice, to enable change in our community, and to encourage themselves and others to flourish, the children have agreed that their focus will be on the environment and climate change. 

It was the children's idea to plant the trees and thanks to Mrs Carvill, we were able to receive lots of trees form the Tree Council for free. The Tree council will be coming into school next term for worship and to do a workshop about trees to the NYLG children and others who wish to join from across the school.
