QE II Remembrance Tree
Following the passing of our beloved Queen Elizabeth II, the children of the Langney School Council decided to investigate a fitting way to honour her, cherish her legacy and to keep her memory alive in our school.
As a great lover of nature and given her appreciation for trees, the children thought that a beautiful specimen tree, of a species she had special affinity with, would provide a fitting memorial and complement our school environment. Ashleigh discovered that the Queen admired the North American Tulip Tree, which has a lovely habit, gorgeous fall colours and enjoys wonderful tulip type flowers once mature.
As our country looks to the future and opens a new chapter with our King's Coronation, we will watch our tree's progress, mindful and appreciative of the past but with an eye for the fresh opportunities afforded us at this time of change.
