St. Aidan’s N.S celebrated National Tree Week, Ireland’s largest annual tree celebration, which kicked off on Sunday 19th March in the National Botanic Gardens of Ireland, marking the start of a week-long series of events dedicated to celebrating and raising awareness of the importance of trees to the environment!! 🌲 🌳 🌱 🪴 
 Organised by The Tree Council of Ireland and proudly supported by Coillte, National Tree Week has been running for over 35 years, with this year’s theme of ‘Biodiversity Begins With Trees,’ designed to inspire people to plant and care for trees and to highlight the many benefits they provide to our environment and local communities.
 St Aidan’s N.S have applied for and received approximately 200-250 beech trees, which will be planted in our new school hedge along the back of the learning support room towards the fence. Each child at St. Aidan’s will get a chance to plant a tree. 
The children were delighted with this news and were busy learning about how to plant, nurture and care for trees during the week!! Thank you to the @treecouncil for their help and assistance in this great undertaking!! 👏🏼
