“We have had our school apiary for 8 years now and our children love the bees. They learn such a lot through hands on experiences like this. Our children inspect the hives, learn about bees and beekeeping and each year have a go at bee breeding through grafting, cupkit, and cell punching techniques, honey extraction and bottling, and candle and cosmetic making.  We host an annual beekeeping festival for schools, and welcome others to our apiary. We offer help and advice to anyone who wishes to learn about bees and in particular setting up beehives in schools so please get in touch.  We are very proud of what we have achieved and what is still to come. The joy that beekeeping brings to our school is priceless. We are committed to providing an outdoor environment that cares for all our wildlife and all our pollinators and offers our children experiences that they will never forget, and we will continue to do so in years to come.”
