Ken Mills Toyota gets its hands dirty at Matthew Flinders Anglican College this Schools Tree Day

Ken Mills Toyota joins with Matthew Flinders Anglican College to get their hands dirty planting trees to celebrate Schools Tree Day on Friday 26 July.

The collaboration is part of Australia’s biggest community tree-planting and nature care event, National Tree Day, which takes place on Sunday 28 July. National Tree Day encourages communities to help preserve the environment for future generations.

“Schools Tree Day is a great way to teach kids about caring for the environment and actively creating a greener future,” said Brett Mills, Dealer Principal. “We will be planting about 80 natives and edible fruit trees here today which have been specifically sourced to match this particular area of the Sunshine Coast - so we look forward to seeing them thrive over time.”

“Today is also a great opportunity for the students to have a hands-on experience with Hybrid Technology and we have had a very inquisitive Q&A session to keep me on my toes!”

Flinders Head of Primary School Trudi Edwards said the College was happy to partner with Ken Mills Toyota to celebrate School’s Tree Day as the event recognises the positive impact that nature has on children’s wellbeing and ability to learn.

“Research tells us that children who are connected to nature have enhanced creativity and problem-solving skills, cognitive ability and academic performance, as well as enjoying improved health and happiness, amongst many other benefits.

“Our Flinders campus is surrounded by lush rainforest and we encourage our students to learn from and in nature with regular lessons in our Outdoor Classroom and opportunities to join co-curricular clubs such as our weekly Edible Garden Club.

“Connection with nature is one of the greatest learning opportunities we can offer our students and we embrace this at Flinders for our students’ happiness and growth.”

2019 is the 20th anniversary of Toyota Australia’s support for the national campaign with over 2,000 schools involved last year as part of National Tree Day.

Schools Tree Day is organised by Planet Ark in partnership with Toyota Australia and its Dealer Network which provides on-the-ground support at tree planting sites across Australia.
