Worth marks Queen's Platinum Jubilee

Worth School

Worth has marked the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee by planting a tree on the pinetum near St Mary’s House.

The tree, which is a sequuoiadendron giganteum ‘Pendulum’, was planted on Speech Day by Head Master Mr Stuart McPherson and Abbot Mark. It is a large, evergreen tree that reaches approximately 15 metres in height and has a broadly weeping, irregular growing habit, with branches hanging down sharply and some growing in a horizontal, undulating pattern.

The School wanted to do something in honour of the Queen’ Platinum Jubilee and Speech Day – one of the biggest events of the academic year – seemed an appropriate time.
