IN 2014, THE BOARDING SCHOOLS ASSOCIATION LAUNCHED ITS BOARDING ORCHARD CAMPAIGN TO CREATE THE LARGEST ORCHARD IN DISTANCE IN THE UK. OUR YOUNGEST BOARDERS JOINED BSA NATIONAL DIRECTOR, ROBIN FLETCHER, IN PLANTING THE CHRIST COLLEGE CONTRIBUTION IN OUR VERY OWN ECO AREA AS HE TOURED THE SCHOOL.
It was a great pleasure to have Mr Robin Fletcher, National Director of the Boarding Schools Association visit Christ College as he tours the country visiting member schools.
As part of his visit, he spent time touring the school’s boarding facilities, meeting boarding staff and pupils along the way.
Mr Fletcher took the time to plant a fruiting cherry tree in the school’s new eco area. He was ably assisted by our youngest boarders in St Nicholas and Alway House as well as our Head and Deputy Head of School. The Boarding Orchard was launched by the BSA in 2014. It aims to be largest orchard, by distance, in the UK and involves boarding schools joining the orchard by planting fruit trees in their grounds. The trees symbolise the ‘tree of knowledge’ and demonstrate each school’s commitment to growth and caring for the environment. Since launch, schools across the UK – including Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland – have joined The Boarding Orchard, and trees have also been planted at boarding schools in Switzerland and the USA.
The Head of Christ College, Mrs Emma Taylor, said, “It was a great pleasure to welcome Mr Fletcher to Christ College and it was lovely to hear our youngest boarding pupils explain why they love boarding at Christ College. They enjoyed getting involved in the tree planting and will be looking forward to the watching the tree grow as they move on through the school in the years to come.”
