Tonga schools receive seedlings as part of re-planting programme

Four schools within the Fanga'uta Lagoon Catchment area on Tongatapu have received seedlings as part of the Tonga Ridge To Reef (R2R) project.

Students of Folaha GPS, Longoteme GPS, Beulah Primary Schoolin Vaini and Peteli College in Pea will be responsible for planting the seedlings and looking after them.

The Forestry team will do follow up visits to ensure that the new plants are growing healthy and well.

This is part of the campaign to help keep the environment green and healthy, especially within the different school compounds.

The plant seedlings were distributed by a visiting team from R2R, Ministry of Education and Forestry department.

R2R is funding the project with the partnership of the Ministry of Education and the Forestry Department.

Longoteme Government Primary School also received three new 'Keep Tonga Green' garbage bins from the Waste Management Authority
