In a few years time, students and teachers at Bayley’s Primary School could be sitting in the shade of fruit trees studying or relaxing.
Thanks to the members of the St. Philip North Constituency Council and Senior Field Superintendent, Edson Alleyne of the National Conservation Commission.
They, along with students from Class 1 to Class 4, leader of the 4H Club, Anderson Butcher, and the Brownies, planted shade and fruit trees not only for beautification but health as well.
“It is part of our endeavour to provide trees both to the schools and the community. Mr. Alleyne planted two cassias and black pearls trees, while the St. Philip North Constituency Council planted a soursop and a pear tree. The Principal [Lorraine] Burke was very grateful to the St. Philip North Constituency Council and the NCC in this tree planting project, said Wynell Smith, who represented the NCC.
The other members of the Council who participated were Esther Sargeant and Philip Knight.
The activity was in observance of Arbor Day, September 22nd.
