Yesterday we celebrated Arbor Day at GLS. We had a special assembly to talk about the meaning of Arbor Day, and ASB donated some trees for us to plant. At the assembly, Josie spoke on behalf of the Puriri Team and explained what Arbor Day meant to here. Here is what she said:
Arbor Day makes me stop and think about nature. It makes me appreciate the trees and plants surrounding me. We are lucky because we have lots of trees and plants at Grey Lynn School so we should look after them.
Josie spoke so well that she was asked to help plant the Puriri Team's tree. After it was planted, we went back to class and wrote instructions for planting a tree. Here is Josie's!

2. Put the tree in the hole.
3. Put some soil in and around the hole until it is full.
4. Fill the watering can with water.
5. Pour some water onto the tree.
