Pupils at Croxley Green school have played their part in helping the environment, by planting trees to mark The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.
The Yorke Mead Primary Eco and School Councillors came together on December 3, to plant two trees as part of the Queen’s Green Canopy (QGC) initiative.
The Woodland Trust Queen’s Green Canopy (QGC) is a unique tree planting initiative created to mark Her Majesty’s Platinum Jubilee this year, which invites people from across the UK to Plant a Tree for the Jubilee.
Many local schools, including Yorke Mead, have jumped at the opportunity to get involved with the initiative to create a legacy in honour of The Queen’s leadership of the nation, which will benefit future generations.
The Hornbeam and Field Maple were successfully planted by the children, in the school’s new forest school site.
Year 6 pupil, Leah, said: “I feel excited and honoured to be able to plant a tree for the Queen.”
Another student said: “We have made history. The Field Maple will live to be up to 300 years old. I am so excited!”
It is hoped that the trees will be enjoyed for many generations to come.
