Bee School St. Thomas Aquinas

St. Thomas Aquinas

Edmonton Catholic Schools believes students should participate in social justice projects to help the community and to promote care for creation. Becoming a Bee City School seems like a perfect fit for St. Thomas Aquinas. It’s a win-win! Our school is K-9 so there are a variety of lessons and projects in all areas of the curriculum that teachers can cover to promote awareness of how bees impact our lives and the environment.

2022 Renewal

Our grade 1 Bee Hive class learned about how bees work together as a team to get the job done. We shared our knowledge with the rest of the school in writing, artwork and on morning announcements. We participated in the virtual bee pollinators program and to thank our parents for their support this year we sent home packets of bee friendly seeds to thank them for “helping us grow this year” and for the families to keep helping the bees over this summer. For our science curriculum, students in the entire school ( over 1050 students) planted their own seeds to take home, a bee friendly plant, for their own garden this summer.

Next year, we plan on creating a bee garden filled with bee friendly flowers to beautify our school sign and to continue to promote the message of how valuable bees are to our environment. It will also be a great community building experience for students to learn hands on about planning out a garden and watching it grow.
