Schools Tree Day at Blackmans Bay Primary

Bbay tree day

It was great to visit Blackmans Bay Primary School last week for Schools Tree Day. This is a school that takes their environmental responsibility very seriously; and better still, they use it as an education resource. I arrived to find the kids digging, planting, driving in stakes and obviously enjoying themselves. Trees were going up everywhere, and by that I mean even outside the school where they've adopted a neighbouring plot of land and are in the process of revegetating a once barren piece of land. Fantastic stuff! Plus the school principal, Anthony Burrows, was kind enough to show me around the school's new sustainable classrooms currently under construction. They're bright, energy efficient, full of innovation, and allow the outside world to merge with the classroom. An inspirational place.
