Beekeeping can be of huge benefit to your schoolBees should be in every school in the UK! That's our mission anyway. Can you help?
Yvonne Kilvington, of Ashbrow School in Huddersfield, beekeeper and school employee has kept bees onsite for the last 7 years:
“I can remember one young man who's confidence in the classroom was pretty low but, by spending time outside with the bees over a number of weeks, his confidence went through the roof and had an huge impact on his work inside school. He felt good about himself as he achieved things he thought he never would, and this is very much the case with a lot of children.”

“Outdoor learning can have a positive impact on behaviour and can stimulate, motivate and offer learning experiences that no classroom can offer. For those who are otherwise disengaged in the classroom, being outdoors can often see them flourish in an environment they feel comfortable in.”
