​​​​​​​Balloch pupils to plant trees

Tomorrow (Wed 30 October) primary 1 pupils at Balloch Primary in Inverness will be putting on their wellies, wrapping up warm and working hard to plant 33 trees in the playing fields next to the school and local hall.

As result of a sudden surge in climate protests around the world, a number of Primary Schools in Inverness will be planting trees with their P1 pupils to get the point across that we need to make a change.

The session tomorrow at Balloch follows the successful planting session at Croy Primary held earlier this month.  

Culloden and Ardersier Councillor Trish Robertson, the Vice Chair of The Highland Council’s Environment, Development and Infrastructure Committee has organised the planting project within Ward 17 and arranged for the trees for to be paid for from the Ward Budget.

She said: “The first session held at Croy went really well and the P1 pupils planted 11 trees in the school grounds.  I’m looking forward to joining the pupils at Balloch Primary tomorrow to lend a hand as 33 mixed trees need to be planted – one for each pupil. It is great to see the young children really engaging with this project.”
