Senior Members of the Enviro Group Inquiry About Fruit Trees

On Tuesday the Senior members of the Enviro Group meet with the Enviro facilitator and started an inquiry about the fruit trees we have been gifted by Kings Plant Barn through the 'Fruit Trees for Schools Programme'

The children saw the benefits of a school orchard as
1. Fruit could be given to students who didn't have a healthy lunch
2. Give fruit to people in the community who need it
3. Study the fruit to see how it grows and its life cycles
4. Planting trees is good for the environment as it reduces carbon dioxide
5. They could sell excess fruit as a fundraiser

During their next session the students will do some experiments to check soil type and drainage and possibly plan the trees
