The Queens Canopy Project - 10 May 2022
On Tuesday, Mrs Tickell and I were lucky enough to go with other schools in our area to see trees which have recently been planted in the Great Park to celebrate the Queen's 70 years on the throne.
We got onto a bus and were taken to an undisclosed location in the Great Park. When we got off the bus, we went and took pictures of a tree that had been planted in the name of The Windsor Boys’ School. After this, students of the 70 schools that attended, took a picture under an arch that commemorates the Platinum Jubilee. We then got back onto the bus and were taken to eat some delicious food inside Ascot Racecourse. This was a unique opportunity that will never come around again and I'm glad I was chosen for such an incredible event!
‘Treebilee’ was named by the Prince of Wales when he planted the first oak sapling in the grounds of Windsor Castle in May 2021. A tree is a statement of hope and faith in the future. The target for this initiative is to plant millions of trees the length and breadth of the country to celebrate the Queen’s 70 years on the throne, by winter this year.
