New students are branching out

New Year 7 students at Fairfield High School put down roots at the

new students

New Year 7 students at Fairfield High School put down roots at the 

school in October by planting fruit trees with their tutor groups. 

Each group has a tree they can watch growing over their five years at the secondary school. Pupils were joined by parents and carers for the momentous occasion.

Students buried time capsules alongside the trees which they will dig up in 2021. These contain photographs and messages that the students can eventually keep as mementoes of their school days.
