Malvern, St Elizabeth — In recognition of National Tree Planting Week, Hampton School's 160th anniversary celebrations recently incorporated a tree-planting activity.

School leaders say 160 trees (neem and pine) were planted by 160 students during a brief ceremony at the school on October 2.

The trees were donated by the Forestry Department.

Kaola Samuels of the Forestry Department commended the students for what she said was their important contribution to their school as well as to climate change. She encouraged them to ensure that the plants are taken care of to maturity.
