Five fig trees were planted in 1992 to commemorate the visit by the Japan Junior Chamber Inc and Japanese children to Sydney to promote the Age of Global Citizenship.

Global citizenship aims to empower pupils to lead their own action. Along with the knowledge and values that they have gained from learning about global issues, pupils need to be equipped with the necessary skills to give them the ability and confidence to be pro-active in making a positive difference in the world.
