This term our Prep room has undertaken an inquiry on bees. The boys have been asking many questions such as, “how can you tell which one is a Queen bee?” “Do all bees die when they sting?” and “how do bees produce honey for us to eat?”. To answer their questions, we sourced a knowledgeable beekeeper named Maurice who came to visit on Wednesday 2 November.

Maurice showed us his beehives, brought some honey for us to try and even brought live bees in an enclosure for us to observe. A highlight for the boys was when they were able to try on the oversized beekeeper’s suit. The Prep boys were so grateful for the engaging experience that they decided to write a thank you card for Maurice which was a lovely gesture.
