Staff from Sainsbury’s in Potters Bar joined pupils at Pope Paul Primary School to plant trees as part of the Queen’s Commonwealth Canopy, a network of forest conservation initiatives.

Pupils Lena Job, Hannah Lopata, Eraldo Kola, Panayiotis Komodromou and Lucy Lines planted two silver birch trees, two rowan trees and a hazel tree with the help of science support teacher Mrs Carey and Sainsbury’s staff member Mark Brown.

Headteacher Liz Heymoz said: “The trees will be a beautiful addition to our school, helping us to learn more about British values, nature and God’s creation.

“We are passionate about outdoor learning, conservation and trees. We continually strive to ensure our children develop a passion and interest in looking after the planet for future generations.”
