Planting day at St Matthew's Church of England Primary Academy, Westnewton
St Matthew's Primary in Westnewton was visited by representatives of Sealy to help plant trees in the school grounds. Pupils, staff and representatives of Sealy planted the saplings to create wildlife habitats and encourage biodiversity. The trees were all native British species, grown in the UK and include Green Beech, Dogwood, Hazel, Guelder Rose and Spindle.
These new saplings will provide a perfect habitat for wildlife, promoting biodiversity and preserving the natural environment. The children gained hands-on experience of how trees are planted and learned how important trees are to the world in which we live.
Sealy has teamed up with Carbon Footprint as part of their carbon management programme and with Tree Appeal, planting native broadleaf trees in schools. Sealy is sponsoring the planting of more than 150 trees at St Matthew's, demonstrating their commitment to environmental education and their aim of reducing their impact on the natural world.
