Cambridge High School has a plant nursery and eventually its plants needed a home. There is a huge number of plants required to replace the old gum trees which had to be removed before one fell over and killed someone. A dog and a car had already fallen victim to falling trees.
A strong contingent of 15-year-old (more or less) students planted about 180 plants in a bit less than an hour and a half, on both sides of the Camelia Walk on the top of the bank beside Lake Te Ko Utu. Here they are, having a great time.
This year, 2017, another group of Year 9 students planted more trees grown in the school nursery. They were a bright, energetic bunch and they emptied out the school's trailer and looked for more.
