DGS Horticulture Students supporting La na gCrann.
“From a small acorn grows a mighty oak tree”.
Well done to our 4 Whitworth Horticulture class for their efforts in fostering a tree culture and raising awareness of the importance of trees.
We planted our tree as part of the Tetra Pak Tree Day 2020 which takes place on Thursday, 1st October.
This year’s theme is Be A Force For Nature! (“Bí i do fórsa don nádúir!”) Which focuses on the things we can do in our everyday lives to help nature and our environment. Students dug deep to ensure our small oak tree amongst the mature trees gets a good grounding along our campus entrance.
Trees absorb carbon dioxide and release oxygen and help reduce the risk of climate change. They also provide shelter and food for birds, insects and animals. We enjoy the nature and beauty our campus offers and we strive to develop it whilst supporting the environment.
