Albany Academy in partnership with the Woodland trust have planted sixty new saplings within the schools grounds. The saplings which were applied for then donated to Albany by the Woodland trust were planted at various points across the schools site by tutor reps from each of the Academies five year groups.
The saplings included twenty, Wild Cherry, Silver Birch and Rowan trees and will enhance the school environment as well as its appearance. Mr Peacock, who organised the project said, “The tutor reps did a fantastic job planting the saplings. Hopefully this will help generate an awareness and interest in the school environment and the scientific importance of trees to the students and the wider community.”
