Tree Champions Special Status

Our Primary Eco pupils are celebrating after their Young Tree Champion project – Hutchietree Climate Carers – achieved Young Tree Champion National Beacon School status.

Kingarth Street’s Eco-Committee pupils found out that their application to join the Young Tree Champions scheme had been successful in the Spring of 2021. They were awarded 5 new trees to plant in our school grounds.

To achieve Young Tree Champion National Beacon School Status the group undertook a series of activities to highlight the importance of trees in tackling climate change and the benefits of being in nature for our health and wellbeing. They shared their activities with other schools by posting their work on the YTC club news site.

Head of Primary Ashley Cornfoot said: “One of the best ways we can enjoy and protect our environment is through the planting of trees. At Hutchie, we are so excited about being named as a Young Tree Champion National Beacon School as it highlights our approach for fostering a love for nature and our commitment to a more sustainable future.”
