Our vision was to educate our school and local community about what pollinators are, why they are important, why they are struggling, and how we can help them. We also wanted to make our school gardens more pollinator-friendly.


Our students researched all about pollinators! Then they designed a built a huge bulletin board display in the front hall of the school, did class presentations, and did morning announcements. They organized and lead a school assembly on April 30th. Then they researched about native pollinator plants, they came up with new designs for our three school gardens, we bought the plants, and the students planted them (including a small vegetable garden!) and maintained them. Beeeutifully successful initiative! And the icing on the cake was that we could use all of these tasks to renew our Bee School status with Bee City Canada!

Reflection & Celebration

We had a pollinator celebration party – including having a pollinator-themed cake! We geared this year’s assembly for our kindergarten to grade 3 students, in the hopes of our younger students becoming more aware of how important our pollinators are and developing positive habits at both home and school. The classroom presentations and announcements were made for all of our K to 8 classes. Our grade 5 “Water Rocker” students organized and lead this entire initiative. Having one group of students “own” an initiative is a really fantastic thing so that they feel valued and proud when everything has been accomplished.
