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 $9,750 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 provide additional habitat for native fauna.

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. 

Today we planted one of 100 trees, with help from Phillip Thomson OAM MP, as part of the 'Planting Trees for the Queen's Jubilee Program'. These trees will not only provide shade but build on our school's Environmental sustainability.

"Environmental sustainability is an integral part of our Catholic Faith, Franciscan Charism and Curriculum. Planting these trees is a perfect way to show students and the community that we are committed to environmental education", said Mr Horner, Principal.

This project received funding from the Australian Government's Planting Trees for the Queen's Jubilee Program.
