National Tree Week in SGS

Posted on : March 24, 2022

On Thursday 24th March, with the help of the 2C Geography class, SGS celebrated National Tree Week by planting 12 saplings around the school. The school was delighted to plant the saplings because two of the old SGS trees had to be felled earlier in the year as they were dying, so the opportunity to replace them was very welcome. National Tree Week aims to encourage people all around the country to plant, look after and learn about trees, stressing the vital part trees play in the maintenance of a healthy planet. Of particular interest are our native broad leaf trees and, with the help of Groundskeepers Harry Nairn and Alan Dunbar,  the second years planted Rowan, Hazel, Hawthorn, Birch, Alder and Oak trees. The saplings were gifted to the school by Self Help Africa and Sligo County Council.  Many thanks for the gift of the trees and to the 2C class, their teacher Ms Moore and Harry and Alan for planting them.
