Woodland Trust Green Tree Schools Award Winners

Thanks to the Reception Class, Corpus Christi School has been awarded a gold award by the Woodland Trust for getting involved in green activities including visiting a local woodland, taking part in forest school experience, reducing carbon emissions and recycling, and various other woodland activities.

The Green Tree Schools initiative, which has seen more than 12,000 schools sign up since it was launched in 2008, offers the opportunity to bring the great outdoors, wildlife and green issues into the classroom.

The scheme promotes a range of opportunities, each designed to stimulate a child’s imagination and sustain their interest in woods and trees.  The achievements of the school are recognised through an awards scheme in which they receive points for taking part in activities.  We have received an attractive wooden plaque which acknowledges that we’ve achieved the environmental accolade of a gold award.
