All Tatura Primary School students have now participated in the One Tree Per Child global planting initiative after a special session was held at the school last week.

‘‘It was a tremendous success,’’ principal Susanne Gill said.

Ms Gill said the students were incredibly lucky to have some great helpers on the day who they thanked very much.

‘‘We had Terry Court here all day helping to teach the children all about tree planting and sustainability,’’ she said.

‘‘And the Hall family were here all day to help where ever it was needed.’’

Ms Gill also gave a special mention to staff members Mrs Crosbie, Mrs Meka and Mr Cowan.

‘‘(They) stayed outside and co-ordinated the mulching, watering, raking, digging and planting,’’ she said.

The school conducted the planting session after students attended one held at Lake Bartlett recently — their first taste at getting their green thumbs into action.
