Beaupré Community Primary School’s pupil committee are joining forces with the Beaupré Fundraising Group to plant a native hedgerow in their school grounds as part of the Woodland Trust’s Jubilee Woods project.
The Trust is aiming to plant six million trees across the UK during the course of the project to mark the Diamond Jubilee of Her Majesty The Queen in 2012. Schools and communities across the region are taking part by planting free trees provided by the charity.
This autumn packs contain an exclusive Royal Oak sapling which has been grown from an acorn gathered from a Royal estate such as Sandringham or Windsor, to help people mark the Jubilee with a lasting tribute in their community or school.
 The Outwell school headteacher, Mr Rhodes, said: “Through tree planting, the school is educating the pupils about the benefits of trees and their importance for the environment. It is great to have the support of the Beaupré Fundraising Group to help apply for the hedge pack and help the children with the planting.”
