Gallipoli Pine Planting on campus – a reflection

UC marked the Anzac Day centenary with the planting of a seedling from the original Gallipoli Lone Pine. Chancellor Dr John Wood CNZM QSO (below right), planted the Gallipoli Pine seedling to mark the 100th anniversary of the first Anzac Day after the University’s Anzac Service hosted by the UCSA on Monday 25 April.

Alan Leckie from Scion (above left), who gifted the tree to UC,  said before the planting:

“This memorial tree honours all those women and men who left our shores and it specifically honours women and men from this university.”


UCSA President Alex Cheesebrough helped at the planting.
