Queen Elizabeth II Platinum Jubilee Print 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. 

Bendigo South East Secondary College received funding of $20,000 from the Queen`s Platinum Jubilee Tree Planting Program which will run from 2021-2024. The project will plant shade trees, install commemorative plaques and hold an event in honour of The Queen’s Jubilee. This will beautify the secondary school precinct and enhance shade for students.

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. 

BSE has recently received a $20,000 grant through the Planting Trees for the Queens Jubilee Grants Program to plant a series of new native trees on school grounds. That's why we were delighted to welcome our local Federal MP Lisa Chesters this morning to unveil an official plaque and plant a tree.

Also in attendance was our Principal, College Council President, College Captains and Vice Captains, our Sustainability Leaders and other key staff involved in the project to plant native trees utilising this grant.

We are also thankful that Lisa has kindly donated $250 to the college to purchase books for our library! Thank you Lisa Chesters MP and the Federal Government for your generosity!
