Nobleton Public School has been a certified Eco school for three years. We started out with a silver certification and now we are gold certified. We want to keep improving our outdoor spaces from both an environmental and educational viewpoint. Bees are vital to our ecosystem. They are some of the hardest working creatures on the planet, and because of their laborious work ethic, we owe many thanks to these amazing yet often underappreciated insects.
Pollinators are necessary in producing fruits and vegetables which is beneficial for our local farmers. We believe that educating young minds about the importance of creating habitats for pollinators is necessary for bees to survive. We believe that becoming a Bee School would allow us to become local leaders in promoting awareness, providing habitats, and setting a positive action based initiative in our community.
