National Tree Day 2019
Each year, around 3,000 preschools, kindergardens, primary and high schools across Australia take part in Schools Tree Day. Students nationwide have learned how to dig in for the environment and have fun getting grubby planting over 470,000 native seedlings, trees, shrubs, edibles, and flowers.
Schools Tree Day not only benefits the environment but also the kids as they learn about the importance of nature in our daily lives. Educators are encouraged to introduce nature-care activities, outdoor learning, and fun, healthy environmental programs into the day-to-day experience of our children to help them grow.
This year for School Tree Day we had the pleasure of taking native plants donated to us from Mooloolah Valley Nursery to the beautiful kids at Currimundi Special School to help plant and in to give gardening gloves and shirts to Bella Grace Early Learning Centre! It is so great to see how excited all of the kids get over planting trees and getting their hands dirty!
Our team at Sunshine Toyota loves this community event as we get to go out and share this experience with some amazing students and members of the community. It is such a surreal experience to be a part of with all of these spirited and beautiful kids. A special thanks to Darren, Kylie, Ros, Karyn, Candice, Emma, Adam, Aisnley, Calum, Sara and Brooke who all came to get their hands dirty!
