Mark milestone with seeds

DONATING 125 seedlings to recognise its special milestone, KU Chester Hill is celebrating the 125th anniversary of KU Children’s Services (KU).

The service is run by KU which was also founded 125 years ago in 1895 and the first provider of early childhood education and care in Australia.
KU Chester Hill Director Jennifer O’Dowd said they had to shelve plans to have a family and community fun day and hand out seedlings over Covid restrictions.
“We still wanted to have the community involved in our celebration however, so we decided to donate the 125 seedlings to Bankstown Family Day Care for them to distribute to their families,” she said.
“They were very appreciative that we had thought of them and wanted to include them in our 125 year celebrations.”
The theme of the 125 years celebration was ‘making a difference through 125 years of social impact and early education’.
“We chose to do this particular activity as it fits in with our KU values, our service’s special interest in the natural environment and our commitment to fostering positive relationships with our community,” Jennifer said.
“Seeing the delight from the staff at Bankstown Family Day Care after receiving the seedlings was a wonderful feeling for our staff.”
