Here at Northumberland Regional High we are committed to improving awareness about the outdoors and protecting the environment, therefore becoming a Bee School made a lot of sense. We believe it is vitally important to empower our students through the use of outdoor education. Our students are thoroughly invested in this cause and it serves as a great opportunity for them to not only actively protect our local environment but also become leaders by taking responsibility for the ecosystem around them.
Feel free to head over to our Environmental Club Instagram page to check our progress both with pollinator protection and many other environmental projects were involved in! @nrhs_environmental
Our school is very rural. We currently have an outdoor classroom that we would like to make bee-friendly. We have gardens, a greenhouse and a meditative space that need more maintenance and love. We have a strong group of student activists who wish to inform and improve the education and practice of our students and our community regarding outdoor/environmental issues. We would like to make our rural school more welcoming for students and pollinators!
It is the objective of the environmental team to improve the conditions around our greenhouse, outdoor classroom and meditative space to encourage pollinators, as well as the courtyard in the center of our school. We could incorporate National Pollinator Week with a student council initiated spirit week where we share information about pollinators, wear black and yellow, pollinator-themed crafts and days where we work in the garden and courtyard.
