Last week we made a visit to Mt William Advanced Tree Nursery in Lancefield to check on our latest batch of Gallipoli Oak seedlings. This year over 200 #trees will be delivered to primary schools across the state as a living WWI memorial. The delivery this year marks the conclusion of the Gallipoli Oaks Project, with 400 trees already planted across #Victoria since 2014.
The western cell range has undergone a number of alterations over the years. Most notably, a steel stair has been constructed at the east end, and a link to B Annexe has been constructed at the west end.

We were in #PortFairy years and years ago – an amazing festival – and Paul Kelly was playing a #Martin or something. A string broke so I said, “you should play a Maton.” “Why should I?” He replied. “I think they’re fantastic, and I’ll give you one,” I said.
This morning we were proud to launch our Innovate Reconciliation Action Plan 2017-19, our third and most ambitious plan to date. The launch was an opportunity to reflect on our #reconciliation achievements so far, outline our goals for the future, and thank various individuals and organisations that have supported us and guided us along the way.
