The Laurier Macdonald CLC teamed up with Alvéole, an organization that helps
people install and care for urban honeybee colonies, to do just that at their school!
Honeybee populations are in decline and if they disappear, so will much of our food
supply. Knowing this information prompted Secondary IV students to
learn more about honeybees and their importance within our ecosystem. What resulted
from their research? They have been giving presentations to fellow students, writing articles
for the school newsletter, creating an LMAC Bees Facebook publicity campaign, giving
newspaper interviews, and preparing videoconferences for other CLC schools. The hives
have been installed on the roof of the student entrance to the school and are visible from
the library, this way all classes will safely see what the buzz is about!
