Planting day at Bruntcliffe School, Leeds

May 2015

Bruntcliffe School in Leeds was visited by representatives of property company Land Securities to help the pupils and staff plant trees in the school grounds. The trees are all native British species such as English Oak, Field Maple, Green Beech and Rowan, all grown in England from collected seed. The new saplings will provide a perfect habitat for wildlife, promoting biodiversity and preserving the natural environment.

Bruntcliffe School was the winner of a competition organised by Land Securities to win trees for their school. The children had to describe why they liked trees and why their school should win them. The lucky children who were chosen to do the planting had an opportunity to gain hands-on experience of how trees are planted and to learn the importance of trees to the world in which we live.

“We are very pleased about the donation of trees and the students have been really looking forward to it. It has been really good for cross-curricular links. The competition was based on literacy but the students have also been using their numeracy and science skills here today”. Oonagh McNee, Director of SEN at Bruntcliffe

Land Securities have teamed up with Carbon Footprint as part of their carbon management programme and with Tree Appeal, planting native broadleaf trees in schools. Land Securities are sponsoring the planting of 175 trees at Bruntcliffe, demonstrating their commitment to environmental education and their aim of reducing their impact on the natural world. This is one of several plantings sponsored by Land Securities who have planted hundreds of trees in UK schools this year demonstrating a commitment to environmental education and their aim of reducing their impact on the natural world.

“Land Securities are proud of the focus we place on environmental issues and this is a brilliant initiative we feel to make a real difference to the immediate community and the wider environment”. James Bailey, General Manager of the White Rose Shopping Centre
