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. 

Dandenong Primary School Council received funding of $9,500 from the Queen`s Platinum Jubilee Tree Planting Program which will run from 2021-2024. The project will plant native trees, install a commemorative sign and hold an event in honour of The Queen’s Jubilee. This will enhance habitat for native fauna and raise awareness of The Queen's Jubilee. 

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.

Earlier this year our school was successful in its application for a federal government tree planting grant.The objective of the program is to mark the significant occasion of Her Late Majesty's Jubilee through community tree planting events across Australia. The program also intends to:
- increase community awareness and celebration of Her Majesty's Jubilee
create a legacy of tree plantings across the nation
- increase and/or enhance the area of tree canopy.
We have now received approximately 120 native trees to plant around the grounds of our school and we would love for families to help us in the garden on an upcoming "working bee". This working bee will likely take place in mid-November so keep your eye out for details in the coming weeks.
