Arbour month

Principal Colin Hendricks with Grade 2 pupils.

Buck Road Primary School in Lotus River celebrated arbour month with a planting session at the school. The school received various donations of plants and trees and pupils had an opportunity to plant them in the courtyards. Despite the rain pupils had fun digging and getting their hands dirty and learnt about the importance of plants and trees. The school thanked the Department of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries, South African National Biodiversity Institute (SANBI) and the Kistenbosch greening programme for hosting the programme at the school. They also thanked sponsors who donated plants.
