A student from Kings Langley School has planted a tree in honour of Her late Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.
Year 7 pupil Jack was made form captain in September and just two days later decided he wanted to plant a tree in her honour.
Jack then applied for funding to the Friends of Kings Langley School and launched his proposal to the senior leadership team.
The oak tree, which Jack chose as a symbol of the British royal family was planted on Tuesday, December 6.
Speaking about why he chose this initiative in a statement, Jack said: “She was a promise of destiny, kept now at the end of the Elizabethan age, Kings Langley School remembers her.
“She bound our country in all four corners of the realm with our sense of national identity. She was defender of the faith and encouraged acceptance of all religions and faiths.
“She was held with unique regard here and around the world. She was one of the greatest leaders the world has ever had. Our Queen has been a constant in family and imperial life, reigning seven decades over most families, making her the only monarch many people have ever known.”
Mr Tubb, principal assistant headteacher at the school, said: “Jack is a determined young man who is proud to be a member of the KLS student leadership community. He embodies the character values and virtues we promote at KLS and has an infectious desire to make the school environment a rewarding and enjoyable one for all.”
