Tipp Schools Take Part In Planting Trees To Combat Climate Change


School children from Tipperary national schools took part in a nationwide campaign this month to plant a million trees to combat climate change.

The Tipperary schools joined over 300 schools from across Ireland to take part in development charity Self Help Africa’s ‘One Million Trees’ campaign – planting trees in their local school grounds while supporting a wider initiative to plant trees in Africa, and highlighting the impact that climate change is having on poor and vulnerable communities on the African continent.

The initiative is supported by the Irish National School Teachers Association (INTO), who provided native Irish tree seedlings for distribution to classrooms across the country to support the charity initiative.

Trees were planted in Tipperary at Grange National School(NS), Golden NS, Rossmore NS and Boherlahan NS, Cashel, Bunscoil Na Cathrach, Cahir, Killenaule NS, Thurles, and Hollyford NS to coincide with National Tree Week.
