World Environmental Day – Climate Change Workshop and Tree Planting

To commemorate World Environment Day, held on 5 June each year, we visited Tembisa where we planted trees and learned about climate change with the Italtile Group and the Africa Climate Reality Programme (ACRP).

Before the tree planting, Sunny, a climate leader from ACRP, took the participants through a climate change workshop, complete with a demo solar panel. After this, the volunteers and pupils planted fruit and indigenous shade trees throughout the school. A big thank you to the Italtile and Ceramic Foundation Trust for sponsoring such fun activities on World Environment Day.
