Students from local Knox schools have planted trees in the past week to celebrate National Tree Day on Sunday July 29.
Alan Tudge, Federal Member for Aston, was today joined by students at Boronia West Primary School to plant a tree in honour of Australia’s largest community tree planting event.
“It was an honour to be here with Brooklyn and Bailey, two School Captains from Boronia West Primary School, to plant a tree today,” said Mr Tudge.
“Planting trees is an important way that we can all do something positive for the environment.”
“Boronia West Primary School has made an outstanding contribution this year planting over 900 trees. Both the school and the school community should be very proud.”
National Tree Day aims to inspire, educate and recruit Australians to actively care for our land and ensure that future generations are environmentally conscious.
Last year thousands of Australians planted over 1 million native trees, shrub and grasses at more than 2900 Tree Day events, and a host of other Tree Day activities were held.
