Young gardeners have invested in their school’s future by planting trees and bulbs.

Children in Years Four, Five and Six at Appleton Academy in Wyke planted in three areas around the ground as of the newly-built school in Woodside Road.

The school teamed up with Bradford Environmental Education Service (BEES) and building firm H&J Martin for the project. H&J Martin donated 100 trees.

Angela McHale, a director at the academy, said: “It was a really valuable opportunity for the children to get the chance to plant trees and bulbs.”

Year Six pupil Liam Askew said: “I think it was really good. Donating 100 trees will be good for our environment.” Classmate Tyler Richmond added: “I think it was really fun. It was sensible for school and the builders to organise planting trees.”
