Beekeeping for the first time

In preparation for the national final of The School We’d Like it was important that we had some real experience of beekeeping. At the end of last week Imogen, Mr Stanley and My Haycock (our site manager) went to see some bees at Mrs Barker’s house (Mrs Barker is a member of Petersfield and District Beekeepers Association).

All the visitors had to put on full beekeeping suits and ensure there were no gaps for bees to get into. Inspecting the hives was brilliant. The bees were out in force gathering nectar and pollen and were quickly filling frames with honey. They didn’t pay much attention to the humans and it was great to view them at close quarters.

Thanks to Mrs Barker and Mrs Crawley for organising the visit. Everyone really enjoyed themselves.

    Good luck in your competition! It’s great to see bees and learning about an insect that is so vital to human life being studied in schools, it gives us a greater appreciation for how much bees do for us all and how we’d be lost without them. It looks like you all had good fun, once again good luck in your competition and congratulations on getting to the final.
