Mt Clear Plants Mature Trees

TREES PLANTED

Harrison Funerals have once again come to the assistance of local primary schools by providing Mt Clear PS with 20 mature trees. Cynthia Davidson along with students and teachers planted out the trees on National Tree Day. Maree and Brian Harrison have been generously donating mature trees to community groups in the Ballarat district since 2010, one mature tree is planted for every funeral service at the Main Road premises.   Mt Clear trees  
Mount Clear Primary school students were once again delighted to be involved and celebrate National Schools Tree Day last term by planting trees which have again been made available from Harrison Funerals and the Fifteen Trees program. This year they were fortunate to be allocated 20 mature trees. This allowed each year level, during their regular Environmental Science classes to be able to “adopt a tree”.  Each class was involved in the planning of  the location and variety selection of the tree and then finally the planting. Students estimated how tall the tree would be by the time they were adults. Classes continue to take ongoing responsibility and care for their tree. Mount Clear Primary School’s Environmental Leaders actively assisted the classes on the day. Students had a wonderful day and have enjoyed watching their beautiful ornamental pears, Claret and golden ash trees bloom and grow. The students are incredibly grateful to the Fifteen Trees program for giving them the opportunity to beautify and improve the biodiversity of the school landscape. In particular they would like to thank Brian & Maree Harrison of Harrison Funerals for their generosity. Over the past three years students have planted in excess of 500 trees which is a wonderful and lifelong legacy for our students, teachers, parents, and the entire Mount Clear Primary School Community.
