Bee Yourself Day

by Speyside High School


22 November, 2016

Speyside High school’s pollination project held a Bee Yourself Day on Friday 7th October. The group involved in bringing this idea to life worked very hard to achieve the goals set for this day. These were to Raise Awareness of the different pollinators in our local area and to Raise the Money needed to fund our ideas. The day was a great success as many people came with donations and they got in the spirit by dressing up as different pollinators in hope of winning the prize of best dressed. Along with the costume competition there was a variety of stalls including the Treasure Hunt, Meet the Pollinators and a cake stall as well. All in all, the day was a great success as pupils and staff alike got involved across the school. The pollination project here at Speyside High is proud to say that we have raised a grand total of £140 to help us fund our pollinator-friendly ideas.

When we did our first survey in August 2016 we did not find very many pollinators.  We are looking forward to planning how we will improve our 3 square metres so that many more pollinators will visit our school.  We also want to plan how we can improve other parts of our school grounds to create a better environment for us and for local wildlife.  We will keep you posted!

A new pond

As part of our new 'Secret Garden' we have a new homemade pond being put into place.  Polli:nation funding has provided us with some plants to attract wildlife and keep the pond healthy.  We have left it to fill up naturally with rain water and it is accessible to all our children as the path runs down two sides.
