The pupils got their hands dirty at Standbridge Community Centre, and planted more than 500 saplings with the help of Roger Parkinson, from the Woodland Trust.

Year 7 students from Wakefield Girls High School also took part.

Monica Graham, on behalf of the community centre, said: “This is a wonderful local environmental project, especially as it involves so many children.
