TRANBY Col­lege has marked its 20th an­niver­sary by adding 2000 na­tive trees, bushes and shrubs to its na­tive gar­den on Clyde Av­enue.

“Every­one had a hand on the day, with all stu­dents given the op­por­tu­nity to plant a tree to com­mem­o­rate the 20th year of the col­lege,” prin­ci­pal Dr Clay­ton Massey said.

“It was a real com­mu­nity ef­fort, with Tranby Emer­gency Ser­vice Cadets in­volved in pre­par­ing and clear­ing the area and staff and stu­dents in­volved in many dif­fer­ent ways.

“It was a sheer de­light to see the Ju­nior School stu­dents get grubby hands plant­ing their tree,” Dr Massey said.

Tranby Col­lege is dis­tin­guished by its ex­pan­sive, open, green and nat­u­ral school grounds. With lawns and trees and places for chil­dren to re­lax and play, Tranby of­fers a happy en­vi­ron­ment for chil­dren to grow and learn.

“Plant­ing a tree is a gift you give to the fu­ture,” Dr Massey said.
