Coopersale Hall School Becomes Part Of The Queen’s Green Canopy

The Eco Council, with support from the School Council, Year 6 pupils and lead by Amelia, the Head of the Eco Council, helped in the planting of trees donated by The Woodland Trust. The children enjoyed planting 30 saplings, including Wild Cherry, Rowan and Silver Birch with the help from the Deputy Mayor of Epping.

The planting of the trees will count towards The Queen’s Green Canopy, an initiative that marks The Platinum Jubilee of Elizabeth II. The Queen’s Green Canopy (QGC) is a tree planting initiative created to mark Her Majesty’s Platinum Jubilee in 2022 which invites everyone across the UK to plant trees. Following the death of Her Majesty The Queen, and the wishes of His Majesty The King, the initiative will give people the opportunity to plant trees in memoriam to honour The Queen. The Queen’s Green Canopy will create a network of individual trees, avenues, copses and whole woodlands in honour of The Queen’s service and the legacy she has built. This will create a green legacy of its own, with every tree planted bringing benefits for people, wildlife and climate, now and for the future.

The Eco Council and children chose a tree sapling to be named after them and were given the responsibility to plant and nurture it.
