The Tree Council of Ireland supported by Tetra Pak is calling on primary schools across Ireland to get involved in in Tetra Pak Tree Day 2016 tomorrow Thursday 6th October.
The aim of Tetra Pak Tree Day 2016 is to encourage primary school children across the country to put down their school books for a few hours and get outside to enjoy all that trees and our natural environment have to offer.
The theme of this year’s campaign is “Tell me How to Make a Difference” and it will see over 1,000 Rowan tree saplings being made available for primary schools through the website, www.treeday.ie.
Primary schools are encouraged to log onto www.treeday.ie where they can apply for a Rowan tree sapling which they can plant on their school grounds.
Planting these saplings will help teach children about the importance of planting trees to improve biodiversity on the school grounds.
