STUDENTS OF THE Princess Margaret Secondary School were in planting mode today.

With shovels in hand, the students assisted principal Jonathan Corbin and members of the Eastern Toastmasters Club with the planting.

The nine trees were a mixture of fruit (lime) and for shade. They were donated by the club to mark Arbor Day, and as a token of appreciation for the use of the Six Roads, St Philip premises for their meetings. (YB)
