Miss Cole and her two Eco Club students, Evie M and Maisie S (both Year 8) planted an oak tree as part of the Queen’s Green Canopy project (https://queensgreencanopy.org).
Maisie grew the tree from an acorn found in 2018.
Maisie said: “I picked the acorn for homework for primary school at Orchid Vale and didn’t expect it to turn in to this project. I’m really proud to think I’ll be passing tree on my last day in Year 11 and it might even be as tall as me!”
The Eco Club also planted trees at the bottom of the field earlier in the year as part of the project.
Miss Cole said: “I’m really proud that I’ve got two amazing students that really value the environment and are a joy to work with. I look forward to watching it grow with them.”
