We are delighted to announce that one of our ex-pupils returned to school on Friday 15th October to plant an oak tree sapling along with four pupils from our Reception Classes. Harriet planted the acorn at home when she started school at Otford Primary School and has just finished her A levels at secondary school. Harriet's mum contacted us to ask whether Harriet would be able to plant the tree in our grounds.
As an additional result we have also added this new tree to the Queen's Green Canopy - a UK tree planting initiative to mark the Queen's Platinum Jubilee in 2022 and have received our official confirmation - our submission has been approved and we have been awarded with a virtual plaque.
Thanks to Harriet and her family for making this possible, what a wonderful way to mark her growing up at Otford.
