St Benedict’s has planted 120 trees in celebration of the School’s 120th anniversary.

The wild cherry trees, which were provided by the Woodland Trust, have been planted on the School’s site, and also at Holy Family Catholic Primary in Acton, in recognition of St Benedict’s strong partnership with the school.

St Benedict’s Chair of Governors, Joe Berger planted the first tree at the School’s Perivale sports grounds, at a short ceremony attended by the Headmaster, Andrew Johnson, the Junior School Headmaster, Rob Simmons, and students from St Benedict’s Eco Society.

All the remaining trees were then planted by the Combined Cadet Corps – at Perivale and on the St Benedict’s site.

St Benedict’s parents have also donated almost £700 to Restore our Planet’s ‘Trillion Trees’ protect, which is helping to restore and protect the world’s forests.

The Headmaster Andrew Johnson said: "I am delighted that we are celebrating this landmark in our history with an environmental project.

"We hope that these trees will flourish, along with St Benedict’s, over the next 120 years as we continue to educate young people for a sustainable future."
