“As part of Planet Ark’s National School Plant-a-Tree day on Friday 29th July, 2011, our Montessori Cycle Two class invited a number of guests to celebrate this day with us including:

  • The Honourable Mr Geoff Wilson, the Member for Ferny Grove and the Health Minister of QLD;
  • Mr Kent Eisling, the Faculty Director of Services and Environment, Grovely TAFE;
  • Ms Lee Durkin, Grovely TAFE;
  • Ms Jen Seevinck, our Artist in Residence at Grovely State School;
  • Mrs Vicki Baker, the Principal of Grovely State School; and
  • Parents and community members.

A number of children were tasked with greeting our invited guests, welcoming and opening our ceremony, introducing and thanking each of our guests, thanking the P and C for their donation of our tree, assisting Mr Wilson to plant our feature tree and finally extending an invitation to enjoy some light refreshments. The event was a great success.  Thank you to those parents who: were able to provide a plate of food or were able to attend the ceremony, your support is always appreciated.

Kind regards,

Miss Katrina Mills”
