Primary schools across East Gippsland encouraged to apply for Lone Pine seedling from Gallipoli
Successful applicants of Lone Pine seedling to receive the seedlings in time to celebrate the Centenary of the Republic of Turkey.
State Member for Gippsland East and Shadow Minister for Veterans Affairs, Tim Bull, is encouraging primary schools across East Gippsland to apply for the chance to receive one of the 100 seedlings available from the famous Lone Pine tree from Gallipoli. The Lone Pine battlefield was named for the solitary Turkish pine that stood there at the start of the ANZAC assault in August 2015.

Mr Bull said, "This is a fantastic project that is endorsed through RSL Victoria, specifically the Friends of Gallipoli. It aims to solidify the connection between younger generations and Australia's history, whilst teaching students the importance of paying our respects and honouring those who have served and died for our country."

"I have written to all public primary schools in my electorate inviting them to join in, and pleasingly, several have taken up offers already. These schools have signed up to participate and they are to be congratulated for committing to this significant initiative." Mr Bull said.

Mr Bull also said, "Clifton Creek tragically lost their Lone Pine when the bushfire raised the school in the 2019 Black Summer Bushfire. It will be a special moment when this seedling is replanted, and the students will play a role in tending to the pine as it matures."
"The seedlings will be allocated on a first come, first served basis, I strongly encourage all primary schools to apply by registering with the Friends of Gallipoli Chairman Dr John Basarin via email firstname.lastname@example.org." Mr Bull said.
