National Tree Day

24/08/2017

​Now in its 22nd year, National Tree Day was celebrated at Noosaville on Friday 28 July. Thanks to Planet Ark and John Madill Toyota, the school was gifted a dozen native trees, which were planted in a collaborative effort by our Year 6 Enviro leaders and our green-fingered Prep students.


Michael Kelly from Madill Toyota also brought along a hybrid car and talked to the students about the need for ‘greener vehicles and sustainable fuel sources’.  It was a great afternoon in the school gardens and I was particularly impressed about the Prep students’ knowledge about the importance of trees. 


Whilst the school now has more trees breathing oxygen into our air, research by Planet Ark shows that connecting with nature helps grow qualities like creativity, collaboration, resilience, vitality and empathy - qualities we all strive for!
