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 $20,000 from the Queen`s Platinum Jubilee Tree Planting Program which will run from 2021-2024. The project will plant mature trees along the school fence line, install a commemorative plaque and hold an event in honour of The Queen’s Jubilee. This will provide shade and shelter for students and enhance the tree canopy.

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.  

Thank you Northlakes Public School P&C for sourcing the Queen’s Jubilee grant to provide screening along the fence line and increase the tree foliage for the students of Northlakes Public School. The trees planted will grow to at least 2 metres tall. This project received funding from the Australian Government’s Planting Trees for The Queen’s Jubilee Program.

We will be holding a formal acknowledgment event towards the end of the school term. Thank you to our wonderful volunteer Rebecca who organised the project and to Brad Reid Indigenous Horticulture Service for assisting us in bringing the project to life.
