Trees planted to commemorate Her Majesty's Platinum Jubilee

The Deputy Lieutenant of Aberdeenshire Douglas Fowlie joined pupils, teachers, and staff to plant trees at Kininmonth Primary School near Peterhead as part of The Queen’s Green Canopy initiative to mark Her Majesty’s Platinum Jubilee.

The Green Canopy ceremony is one of several events across Aberdeenshire and beyond marking this most remarkable milestone of The Queen’s reign, which began in 1952.

The Deputy Lieutenant of Aberdeenshire was joined by head teacher Briony Mair, teachers, and pupils during the tree planting ceremony on Monday, February 28.

Ms Mair said: “It was an honour to welcome the Deputy Lieutenant of Aberdeenshire Douglas Fowlie to our school. The children were really excited about this special event.

“The trees will not only act as a symbol of Her Majesty The Queen’s enduring reign but they will also be useful for outdoor learning and help the environment.”

There are several Green Canopy three planting ceremonies taking place at schools across Aberdeenshire to mark The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.

The focal point of the national celebrations will be over the Platinum Jubilee weekend with an extended Bank Holiday from Thursday, June 2 to Sunday, June 5.
