The lessons Invermay Primary School pupils learned at Rocherlea went beyond their classroom and touched on the environment, community and business.
A group of grade 6 leaders and SRC representatives from grades 2 to 6 gathered at Rocherlea Recreational Ground to plant trees with Bell Bay Aluminium and City of Launceston council.
School captain Edie Burns and fellow grade 6 pupil Madeline Mitchell were thrilled to be part of the planting program.
They named their bottlebrush seedlings "Barry" and "Emma", respectively, after "people they had lost" - Edie's grandfather and Madeline's twin.

Bell Bay Alumiunium Communities and Communication adviser Lou Clark said this was an annual sustainability event, with more planting happening on Bridport Road, Bell Bay, on Thursday with George Town schools.
"We have had a tree planting every year for the past eight years," Ms Clark said.
"We have done a number of different sites. We have also planted at Newnham in front of Brooks High School and Tailrace Park. For this partnership the council provides the location, we donate the trees and we invite the schools to participate."
St Finn Barr's and East Tamar Primary schools also planted on Wednesday.
Bell Bay Aluminium invites schools in the area trees are planted "because kids can come and see the end product and bring their mum and dad, or grandma and grandpa, to show what they've done", she said.
"In this case it's a recreational area for the community, so to be able to contribute to community in partnership with kids and council is a really good thing."
