On Friday 8th July, a tree-planting ceremony took place on the site of the developing Eco-Reserve at Christ College to mark an incredible fundraising effort spearheaded by The Society of Friends.
The Society of Friends have raised over £13000 to date for the Eco Reserve; a feature which will be enjoyed by the whole school community. Head of Christ College, Emma Taylor, and Chair of the Friends, Cath Maggs, planted trees at the entrance to the Eco-Reserve to mark a milestone for the project and to celebrate the contribution of the Friends. Architect Jonathan Pearson was on hand to explain to a large gathering the principles of the project and its progress to date.
Cath Maggs said: “Our thanks to all those who have supported and contributed this project. The school is making excellent progress with this development and we look forward to seeing it being used by generations of pupils for many years to come!”
