Memorial Tree Planting

This week pupils took part in a tree planting ceremony, planting a tree in the car park field to commemorate the life of Queen Elizabeth II. The planting was organised by Dent Women’s Institute, in collaboration with the Parish Council and with the YDNP trees officer Lee Johnson.

The pupils had to chance to hear about the importance of trees from Lee Johnson and then several of the older pupils helped to plant the tree.

Pupils had a sense of being able to contribute to a historical event in their own small way, and we are very grateful to the WI for inviting us to be part of the occasion, which was enjoyable even on a very cold day!
