Hello Colleen,

Please find attached some pictures of the 2/3 Class planting trees. We are very thankful for the contribution of the trees and we were able to plant these at our “Bush School”.

Bush School is a new program we are piloting at school. Every Thursday afternoon the Grade 2/3 walk down to our school block and learn in the great outdoors. Students are able to have hands on experiences and learn to appreciate and care for the environment.

The students loved getting their hands dirty and the many trips back and forward over the road to the Scout Hall with buckets to get water for the trees. Even with the wild weather we have been having they are growing well and we check them regularly. 

Thank you again for the donation of the trees, the students and I look forward watching them grow.   Kind Regards  Bethany Errey (2/3 Class Teacher).

Thanks must to to Jenny Bibby from J.J. Kell & Son Funeral Directors at St Arnaud. When I contacted Jenni early this year about supporting tree planting she very quickly ‘jumped on board’ and even when as far as finding me the school and nursery!

It is a delight to work with such an enthusiastic and passionate person. Thank you Jenny.

Slainte – Colleen
