Vickie Hughes and Nicky Puttick spoke to Year 9 pupils about their Plymouth University - based research on behalf of the Woodland Trust. Poltair is one of four schools involved in the study to find out about young people's attitudes to tree-planting, woodlands and environmental awareness. A number of Year 9 pupils had taken part in tree-planting schemes at primary school and researchers wanted to find out if this had a long-term positive impact on attitudes of teenagers. Two classes in Year 9 undertook a questionnaire and a focus group of volunteer pupils took part in follow-up discussions. All of this was very helpful to the researchers and as a 'thank you' to Poltair we were presented with a number of gifts related to woodlands and wildlife. These were accepted by Mrs Harvey on behalf of Poltair who leads work by pupils on a range of outdoor projects including Forest School and maintaining a local church garden.
