Goldthorpe Primary pupils celebrate Earth Day
Plant Your Future
On 23rd April 2016, the Earth Day initiative celebrated its 50 anniversary with an adopted theme of tree planting. Staff and children at Goldthorpe Primary School decided to join our site team in doing something positive for their environment.
"Thanks for today; it's been great, the kids really enjoyed being part of the new build."
On 23rd April 2016, the Earth Day initiative celebrated its 50 anniversary with an adopted theme of tree planting. In light of this - and because trees absorb harmful gases in our atmosphere and so help create a healthier environment and a more sustainable future for everyone - staff at Goldthorpe Primary School decided to join in the global effort and do something positive for their environment.
A spokesman for Goldthorpe Primary School said: "Schools and community groups across the world have been planting trees, and we wanted to be part of this environmental movement.
"With that in mind we created our Plant Your Future event, which involved Year 3 pupils each planting a tree to mark the occasion. According to the Earth Day map, we were the only Barnsley school to carry out an event."
Our Project Manager Gordon Fawcett and his team were delighted to welcome the 23 pupils and four staff along to the site where their new school is being built.
