École secondaire Holy Cross
The school community of Holy Cross Catholic Secondary School in Peterborough is very excited to receive the designation of Bee School. We have an active group of students and staff that are committed to the reducing the environmental impact of our school.
The Holy Cross Bee Club, EcoSchool Team, and various classes have been involved in improving pollinator habitat (planting flowers, creating bee hotels, identifying pollinator species) for wild bees on the school grounds. The Bee Club is responsible for the care and maintenance of the three bee hives on the green roof of the school. After one full season, from opening of the hives in the spring to the honey extraction and prep for winter, the group of students eagerly awaits the warm weather to visit their buzzing friends.
