Students take the lead on planting trees

Grade 5 students from Mr. Delvin Chomiak's class at St. Paul CES in Newmarket planted trees with help from the Town of Newmarket at Quaker Park, adjacent to the school on June 7th.

The tree planting was the result of the initiative of 3 students, Vanessa, Kalea and Grace, who arranged this activity with the Town, developed a lesson on the different varieties of trees and the best way to plant and care for them, which they presented to their peers. The students also arranged for an arborist to visit the school and speak to their class about tree planting and the environment.
