Education begins at school

Claude and girls observing a frame of bees

Two pupils from Helensville Primary School – Devon and Danielle, aged 11 and 12 respectively spent a few hours looking at the internal workings of a beehive. We were able to see capped and uncapped brood, observe worker bees at work and drones scurrying around the hive.

The girls both picked up a drone, and ran their fingers gently over the worker bees. We were able to see a newly hatched queen cell in one hive. All great fun and a new adventure for the girls, helping them to have a start on their way to respecting and understanding Apis Mellifera – The Honey Bee. See pictures
