The Green Tree Schools Award is free, fun and has fantastic activities to help Dunn Street celebrate woods and trees.
They reward schools for completing environmental projects and encouraging outdoor learning. Their award is a fantastic way to enhance our school’s green credentials while inspiring youngsters about woods and trees.
Schools gain points for completing activities and progress through bronze, silver and gold levels to the prestigious platinum award. We are currently a “bronze” school, but work this term will see us move to “silver”!
We get a certificate when we complete each level and receive a fantastic wooden plaque to display in school when we reach gold.
As part of the scheme, KS2 welcomed the Woodland Trust for an assembly all about how fabulous trees are…

We have also applied for a schools’ tree pack and our application has been successful! This means we’ve earned two Green Tree Schools Award points for Dunn Street!
We can’t wait to get planting our Medium Wild Harvest (105 saplings)!
