Paper4trees is a programme designed to reward schools and preschools with trees for their paper and cardboard recycling.   When our paper is collected at the end of every school day, the Year 5 and 6 children take it to Mr Rishworth where it is sorted and stored to send to the Paper4trees programme.    Today 28 new trees arrived to thank us for all of our hard work last year!

We really appreciate Paper4trees and their generous sponsors who make this programme possible.  Paper4trees is encouraging us to write to our sponsors to thank them for all of their support.  If you would like to write to our sponsor, please send all mail to:
