On Friday, Mount Gravatt High celebrated Schools National Tree Day by rejuvenating the school's Eco Centre, a site within Mount Gravatt High dedicated protecting and enhancing the habitat for native species of plants and wildlife.
National Tree Day is Australia's largest community nature care and tree-planting event. The day aims to plant trees, reconnect with nature and do something positive for the local environment. Mount Gravatt Environmental Group and Bulimba Creek Catchment Committee members, who supplied 250 trees, were on hand to prepare the site for the planting and educate students on the art of planting trees. Principal Ross Robertson, said the day, which Mount Gravatt High celebrate each year, was a great success, thanks to the assistance from Mt Gravatt Environmental Group and Bulimba Creek Catchment Committee members, our students, teachers and support from special guests, Joe Kelly MP and Corrine McMillan MP.
