Lakefield College School Buzzes with Excitement on World Bee Day
At Lakefield College School, sustainability and a deep appreciation for nature are ingrained in our educational philosophy. Our bee program, led by Mr. Hart, our resident beekeeper, is just one of the many initiatives that help our students develop a keen understanding of environmental stewardship. This year, as World Bee Day coincided with our students' May Break, Mr. Hart eagerly waited for their return to campus to celebrate this important day.
In a special Chapel announcement dedicated to World Bee Day, Mr. Hart took center stage to share fascinating facts and delightful puns about bees and honey production. With enthusiasm and a touch of humour, Mr. Hart captivated the audience as he highlighted the importance of bees as pollinators and emphasized the significance of honey production.
The highlight of the celebration was the opportunity for students to participate in bottling fresh honey collected from the hives on campus.
World Bee Day served as a powerful reminder of the interconnectedness of all living beings and the vital role we play in preserving our environment. By engaging in activities like beekeeping and honey production, our students not only develop practical skills but also foster a deep respect for the natural world and a commitment to sustainable practices.
As we reflect on the celebration of World Bee Day, we extend our gratitude to Mr. Hart for his dedication to the bee program and for inspiring our students to embrace the wonders of nature.
