First school in BBKA's new Schools Scheme wins Eco Project of the Year award!

Calderstone's School in Liverpool has won Eco Project of the Year in the Educate Awards held at Liverpool Cathedral.

6 pupils at the school recently received the first Junior Beekeeping certificates under the BBKA’s (British Beekeepers Association) new School Scheme.


The school has established a wildflower meadow and in that they have hives keeping honey bees. It was this project that won them the award and the school has said a huge array of pollinators have visited the meadow this year and they will be adding more flower types next year. Their beekeeping mentor is teacher Emma Turner-Bone.



The BBKA is thrilled that they are getting this recognition.
