To celebrate Her Majesty The Queen's historic 2012 Diamond Jubilee, the Woodland Trust is encouraging people across the UK to come together to plant 6 million trees.
The Woodland Trust hopes that neighbours, communities, schools and families will come together to plant thousands of individual trees in their gardens, playgrounds and community spaces – each taking the chance to mark this special moment in history in a way that will stay with them forever. Hull Collegiate School has decided to support this initiative by planting an avenue of trees along the western edge of the new playing field. Pupils, parents, staff, governors and former pupils are invited to purchase a tree which may be dedicated, if they so wish, to a person or people of their choice. Furthermore this will be recognised and recorded alongside the trees in an artefact of some permanence.
The trees are 6’ in height and may be purchased at a cost of £95.99, which includes putting them in the ground with stakes, straps, rabbit guards, mulch and compost. They are selected because of low maintenance, they are compact within themselves, they go together in contrasting colours and canopies, they are hardy in exposed places and are known to grow well in this area’s climate and soil. They will be planted in the autumn and arrangements regarding viewing and a formal ceremony will be published nearer the time.

I hope many members of the school community feel they can support us in recognising and celebrating this historic event; I thank you in anticipation.
