Giving Halton kids a great start

10 May 2011

The Mersey Forest has helped create a new mini-woodland and small orchard at Halebank Primary which will help to give pupils a healthy, happy start in life.


150 new trees

An area of existing native trees at the school has been expanded into a mini-woodland with the planting of an extra 150 trees. Hedgerow has also been planted to create shelter and provide an important windbreak.


Healthy eating and local food

The improvements will provide an environment in which children can relax and explore, and the addition of a small orchard will also help teach them about healthy eating and where our food comes from.


More schools supported

The Mersey Forest has also supported tree planting over the winter and spring at other schools in Halton including Farnworth Primary, Windmill Hill Primary and St.Edwards Primary.


Re-connecting with the natural environment

A school grounds audit has also been carried out at Moorfield Primary, with a view to redesigning the school's grounds to maximise the benefits that well-planned natural surroundings can bring, from calmer children to a re-connection between kids and the environment.
