100 YEARS, 100 PRECIOUS TREES:
Hoekwil Primary school recently turned 100 years and in order to celebrate this huge milestone, Precious Tree Project, the staff, the school learners, their moms, dads and grandparents spent a day greening up the school by planting 100 indigenous trees and a large variety of shrubs around the school grounds.
We started the day with a short interactive group session on the importance of indigenous plants and trees – for animal, insect and humankind – then gave a quick demonstration on how to plant a tree to give it the best chance of survival.
A big thank you to all those who pitched up and pitched in to make the event such a memorable one for all.
And thank you to the school groundsmen and those school learners who have offered to maintain the trees and plants while they take root!
