TRINITY High School in Redditch marked the Platinum Jubilee by planting a tree as part of the Queen’s Green Canopy scheme.
Headteacher Nigel Ford along with five students, picked up some spades and started digging to plant a flowering cherry tree in the school grounds.
A commemorative plaque was also put laid, in conjunction with Royal British Legion Industries.
The Queen’s Green Canopy is a tree planting initiative created to mark Her Majesty’s Platinum Jubilee and every tree planted can be uploaded on the QGC map.
All schools, along with other individuals and community groups, have been encouraged to play their part to enhance the natural environment and create a legacy in honour of the Queen.
The Jubilee will also be celebrated by both staff and students during the week with tutor time assemblies, activities and a tea party theme in the dining hall.
“At Trinity High School we place significant importance on developing our students’ mastery of the world around them,” said Nigel.
“Our students and staff were therefore united in their belief that we should mark the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee in style and celebrate this quite wonderful achievement.
“The tree planting will act as our school’s way of marking and celebrating the Queen’s reign but we will also be joining others across the nation in more traditional celebrations involving bunting and cakes a plenty!”
