St. Mary’s High School is proud to have a Vimy Ridge Oak tree on our campus.

This oak tree (Quercus robur, aka:  common or pedunculate or European or English oak), is a true descendant of one of the Vimy Ridge acorns sent home to Canada by Lt. Leslie H. Miller, (Canadian Expeditionary Force), who named the trees grown from these acorns (on his family’s farm in Scarborough, Ontario), the ‘Vimy Oaks.’  (Vimy Oaks Legacy)

This oak tree is a small (but significant!) part of our greater, long-term Community Legacy Project
