CHILDREN planted an orchard with the help of parents and teachers.
Pupils from Great Casterton Primary School planted apple, pear and plum trees in the school grounds on Saturday morning.
The school is working towards becoming an Eco School and the funding for the orchard came from Rutland County Council.
The council’s senior environmental health officer, Craig Howatt, was also on hand to offer some expert advice.
The children will all receive certificates acknowledging their help in create a sustainable resource for the whole school to enjoy.
The next grounds day will be in the spring.
