Tree Canada’s mission is to plant trees to provide shade and protection from solar radiation, and add beauty to the playgrounds and fields where children play and learn.
“Students came in when there were no classes or exams, staff members dropped everything to assist, volunteers from the community came out,” Chairman of the Lester B. Pearson School Board Suanne Stein Day said “we also had help from Sainte-Anne-de- Bellevue Mayor Paola Hawa and councillor Ryan Young,”
The tree planting activity took place on Tuesday June 14th, at 9:30am, on the back athletic field and in front of the school located at 17 Maple avenue.
“The most welcomed trees will provid much-needed shade, will enhance the property, will create habitat and provide other more environmental benefits,” Stein Day said.
