Pupils set to plant trees
As result of a sudden surge in climate protests around the world, P1 pupils from Primary Schools in Inverness will be planting trees to get the point across that we need to make a change.
The first tree planting session will be at Croy Primary School at 9:30am on Monday 7th October. The tree planting project will then be rolled out to other schools including Duncan Forbes, Balloch, Ardersier, and Smithton.
Culloden and Ardersier Councillor Trish Robertson, the Vice Chair of the council’s Environment, Development and Infrastructure Committee, who has organised the event, explained that the trees for Ward 17 Primary Schools are being paid for from the Ward Budget. She has also asked the Woodland Trust for trees to widen the project to include all Highland Schools and is waiting to get their response.
Trish said: “Children have been instrumental in bringing Climate Change to the table through the school strikes taking place across the globe. I feel we should make a point to show we have listened to their call. It is after all their future that is at stake.”
