Ursuline High School’s Year 7 Student Council have launched a Teratrees campaign to green their grounds!
This campaign has seen the students compose their own letter to parents to encourage support, outlying the benefits of contact with nature and all that trees offer. The students also produced a Powerpoint presentation to present to the rest of the student body and will continue to market the campaign in Enterprise Week.
This campaign will run through to October, when the trees which have been supported, will be delivered and then planted by the students.
To see the campaign, register or login to Teratrees, and click on the UHS Goes Green campaign in the campaign tab. In the lower window will be the list of trees and shrubs. To support one of these first top-up with Tera (our virtual currency) via the Top-up button. After topping-up, a tree can be purchased by clicking on the green tick in the Buy column. After the students plant your tree it will appear in My Garden in the My Teratrees section!
This is a fantastic opportunity to support students’ contact with nature, while improving the Borough of Merton’s air quality and natural drainage systems. Many of the trees are native species to support England’s ecosystems and insect population.
