Every July, school students across the country set aside a day to make a positive addition to the environment.

For the kids at South Grafton Public School, it was Tuesday.

Bunnings Warehouse Grafton supplied the native trees and shrubs and taught the students about sustainable practices as they assisted in the planting.

Planet Ark's National Tree Day manager Debbie Agnew said the day was a wonderful way for students to enjoy time outside and connect with nature.

"We believe Schools Tree Day engaged South Grafton Public School students in a fun, hands on activity, which reinforced their environmental, maths, science and creative arts learning and helps brighten up their schools grounds," she said.
