Planting day at Vicarage Primary School, East Ham

March 2016

Payment services company Bacs visited Vicarage Primary School in East Ham to help plant trees in the school grounds. This was Bacs' third planting day in as many years. Pupils, staff and representatives of Bacs helped to plant a new hedge to create wildlife habitats and encourage biodiversity. More than 100 saplings of Bird Cherry, Elder, Spindle Bush, Oak, Crab Apple, Hazel and Hawthorn, all grown in England from collected seed, were planted to create a barrier between the new school garden area and the surrounding houses.

Vicarage Primary is a large 4 form entry school in the London Borough of Newham that serves a culturally and ethnically diverse community in East London. The school aims to create a great home-school partnership built on a foundation of mutual trust and respect that will result in success for the children. The school has playing areas, its own grass playing field and sports halls.

The children gained hands-on experience of how trees are planted and learnt how important trees are to the world in which we live. The new saplings will provide a perfect habitat for wildlife, promoting biodiversity and preserving the natural environment.

Bacs has teamed up with Carbon Footprint as part of their carbon management programme and with Tree Appeal, planting native broadleaf trees in schools, demonstrating their continued commitment to environmental education and their aim of reducing their impact on the natural world.
