On a sunny Winter’s day, Thursday January 13th, a group of senior (‘C’ group) students were invited for the ceremony of the 1000th tree being planted at the Salina Natural Park, St. Paul’s Bay, in a project involving several companies, entities and also schools/ education centres. Each of these organisations participated in the National 34U campaign. This campaign is reaping the desired fruit as our environment will look better if greener. Students are also taught that trees supply oxygen and reduce the amount of carbon-dioxide that is harming our planet and causing climate change due to excessive emissions.
Our Resource Centre participated in this event, and the students had the opportunity to plant young trees and also speak to the Minister for Rural Affairs, Hon. Dr. George Pullicino, MP.
