Queen Elizabeth II Platinum JubileePrint Page Print this page

The trees were planted, and a commemorative plaque unveiled, in honour of Queen Elizabeth II to commemorate her Platinum Jubilee and acknowledge her 70 years of service as Australia`s Head of State. 

The project received funding of $10,200 from the Queen`s Platinum Jubilee Tree Planting Program which will run from 2021-2024. The project will plant native trees, install a commemorative plaque and hold an event in honour of The Queen’s Jubilee. This will enhance the tree canopy and beautify the local environment.

Elizabeth II (21 April 1926 – 8 September 2022) was Queen of the United Kingdom and other Commonwealth realms from 6 February 1952 until her death in 2022. She was queen regnant of 32 sovereign states during her lifetime, and was head of state of 15 realms at the time of her death. Her reign of 70 years and 214 days was the longest of any British monarch and the longest verified reign of any female monarch in history.  

On Friday it was lovely to attend a commemorative event at North Star Public School where seven recently-planted snow pear trees were unveiled to the community.

The trees were funded under the Australian government’s Planting Trees for the Queen’s Jubilee program, to commemorate the service of Her Late Majesty Queen Elizabeth II to the Commonwealth over the past 70 years.

North Star Parents and Citizens Association received a $5800 grant which has been used to plant the seven trees – one for each decade of the late Queen’s reign. The trees have been planted around an old concrete slab in the playground, converting the space into a shaded outdoor learning area for the children and community to enjoy. It’s a fitting tribute for Queen Elizabeth and will ensure her memory lives on at the school for decades to come.

The Moree community will also be able to remember the late Queen and enjoy a beautiful green space at Moree PCYC, thanks to funding under the Planting Trees for the Queen’s Jubilee program. I recently visited the PCYC to chat to Manager Tayla about the club’s plans to plant more than 30 native and citrus trees around the facility, thanks to a $10,200 grant. This will complement the $2.7 million upgrade that is currently underway, creating a wonderful facility for the whole community to enjoy.
