Trees planted in bid to keep school healthy

Thurrock Gazette: Trees planted in bid to keep school healthy Trees planted in bid to keep school healthy

STUDENTS have been planting trees to keep their school green and healthy.

Pupils from The Gateway Academy planted more than 40 Silver Birch trees inside their perimeter fence with a little help from the Essex Wildlife Trust and community volunteers.

The academy carried out the exercise having received a share of a community grant from The Tree Council.

The trees are hoped to minimise noise and reduce pollution in the school grounds by up to 50 per cent.

Mayor Tony Fish said: “I applaud the students and staff of The Gateway Academy on their innovative approach to providing an environment that is pleasant with less pollution and traffic noise. I am sure that this new environment will blossom and develop in the same way as the delightful pupils of the Academy.”
