The schools all "adopted a spot".

Children at Porirua schools marked Arbor Day yesterday by planting trees.

Five schools participated in a planting ceremony at Maara Roa (Cannons Creek Reserve).

The schools all adopted a spot they will tend during the next decade.

Also yesterday, several schools took part in a city council planting ceremony at Okowai Lagoon.

Russell School students planted a garden in their school grounds on Tuesday.
