St Cleopas Church of England Primary School, in Toxteth, planted 30 trees in its grounds with help from students, parents, teachers, staff from our Regeneration Team and the LHT Jigsaw Neighbourhood Solutions Team.
The willow, apple and pear trees will grow in the school grounds and give shelter and shade to an outdoor grassed area where children learn and play in dry weather. Teacher Neil Ralston said: “The children loved helping to plant the trees and it’s nice for them to see the connection between the fruit they see in the supermarket and the fruit trees they helped plant.” “We’ll be using the wooded area for storytelling and teaching.
