Celia the Dolphin visits local childcare centre for National Tree Day

Last Friday 28th July, the kids and educators at Good Start Early Learning Centre on Tooloa Street got a pleasant surprise visit from Celia the dolphin.

Local Toyota dealership Bill Robertson Toyota is well known for winning awards for environmental work and there is no surprise why when you see the work they are doing with schools for the 22nd year of Planet Ark’s Schools Tree Day.

Celia the Dolphin along with James and Erin Robertson from Bill Robertson Toyota donated six bottle brush trees that the kids planted along the outside fence line and four fruit trees that were planted inside the centre.

Through Schools Tree Day and National Tree Day, Planet Ark and Toyota hope to educate the nation on the value and importance of preserving the environment.

Over the years Bill Robertson Toyota has partnered with many locals for Schools National Tree Day including Buliyan State School, Clinton State School, Boyne Island State School, Port City Kids, Rainbow Valley Early Learning Centre and Koolyangarra Kindergarten.  This year it was Good Start Toolooa.

Erin Robertson said, “Toyota has a long tradition of supporting local communities and Schools National Tree Day is a great way for us to give something back.  We decided to plant the bottle brush as screening privacy along the fence as it’s quite a busy street and the fruit trees for educational purposes to encourage children to be eating healthy.

“We look forward to seeing it grow over the coming years for kids, teachers and parents to enjoy.”
