Special Ed students planting Trees for SurvivalLast month students from the Special Education Department here at Takapuna Grammar took part in an annual tree planting trip together with Trees for Survival, a charity that promotes the growing and planting of trees to prevent soil erosion and improve diversity.
Ten of the older students came along and a great time was had by all "We had pumpkin soup" said Alana, "I want to come again next year!" said Zara. A variety of young trees were planted including cabbage trees, flax and manuka all of which the students had raised from small seedlings. Approximately 800 trees were planted by the students and a wonderful time in the sunshine was had by everyone.
