The Pollinator Project

Mark Nolan from the Heritage in Schools’ Scheme visited Billis N.S on Friday last. 3rd & 4th class pupils took part in the pollinator project which is a celebration of Ireland’s wonderful pollinating insects especially our ‘busy bees’. Pupils learned about the importance of bees and pollination for biodiversity, discovered where our honey comes from and had an opportunity to examine beehive and beekeeping equipment. One of the pupils dressed up in a beekeeper’s uniform. Pupils explored the school grounds and at the end of the day they planted biodiversity boosting sunflowers to take home and care for over the summer. We’re looking forward to seeing some pictures of these giant sunflowers.
