ST Benedict’s, the Catholic independent school in Ealing, has planted 120 trees to celebrate its 120th anniversary.

The wild cherry trees, provided by the Woodland Trust, are on the school’s site and also at Holy Family Catholic Primary in Acton, in recognition of its strong links with St Benedict’s.

Chair of governors Joe Berger planted the first tree at the Perivale sports grounds of St Benedict’s, in a ceremony attended by headmaster Andrew Johnson, Junior School head Rob Simmons and students from St Benedict’s Eco Society.

The remaining trees were then planted by the school’s Combined Cadet Corps.

St Benedict’s parents have also donated almost £700 to Restore Our Planet’s Trillion Trees project.
