Planting Trees with Queen’s Park Primary

On February 21, 2024, Longhill High School was honoured to host Queen’s Park Primary School for a meaningful and forward-looking tree-planting event on our campus grounds. This initiative underscores the vital role trees play in mitigating climate change by absorbing carbon dioxide, one of the primary greenhouse gases, from our atmosphere.

The genesis of this project traces back to the start of the academic year when the young environmental stewards at Queen’s Park embarked on a journey of growth by planting seeds in pots. Over six months, these seeds were tenderly cared for, gradually evolving into robust seedlings ready for their new home. Given our school’s ample green spaces, Longhill offers an idyllic setting for such an enriching endeavour.

This tree-planting event aligns perfectly with one of the key objectives outlined in our Eco-Schools Action Plan, focusing on School Grounds. Our goal is to enhance the educational environment for our students, faculty, and the local flora and fauna, creating a more inviting and sustainable campus. For a deeper dive into our commitment to becoming an eco-friendly educational institution and to learn more about our initiatives, we invite you to visit our blog post: Longhill High School – An Eco School.

This collaboration between Longhill High School and Queen’s Park Primary School not only symbolizes our dedication to environmental protection but also serves as a powerful educational tool, teaching our students the importance of taking actionable steps towards a more sustainable future.
