Our College is constantly maintaining and planting shrubs and trees to keep our property looking its best. So we were very excited to get our hands dirty as part of National Tree Planting day.
As a College we participated in 2 parts, first with our Year 9 students planting 500 shrubs on Tuesday 23 July as part of School Tree Day and then with our Parent Engagement Group planting 1,000 plants on Sunday 28 July.
Year 9 student Jacob Broomfield said “On July 23 all of Year 9 students went out for an hour to plant some trees beside Jacksons Creek as part of a Landcare initiative and in celebration of School Tree Day. The volunteers who assisted us were very good at teaching us what to do and teach how to plant the trees. It is hoped that the trees we have planted will revegetate the creek area and in years to come, we may be able to come back and sit under a tree we have planted.”
Active member of the Parent Engagement Group, Wendy Furniss has this to say "It was wonderful to see so many families get involved with re-vegetation works along Jacksons Creek at the back of the farm. Many thanks to Robert Hall from PPWCMA for providing the plants, and Friends of Holden Flora Reserve and Friends of Emu Bottom Wetlands, who assisted on the day. I am looking forward to watching the trees grow in the next few years, and hope we can continue the good environmental work into the future."
We were so proud of everyone’s efforts over the two days, it was a true display of the Salesian spirit.
