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. 

Deans Marsh Primary School received funding of $2,500 from the Queen`s Platinum Jubilee Tree Planting Program which will run from 2021-2024. The project will plant trees by a student led group, install a commemorative plaque and hold an event in honour of The Queen’s Jubilee. This will provide habitat for native fauna and increase community participation.

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.

Yesterday, with the help of some wonderful school community members, all Deans Marsh Primary School students marked the Queen's Platinum Jubilee by planting 70 new trees in our school ground, including a large Magnolia Elizabeth. The 70 trees represent the Queen's 70 years of service.
