Bee Aware Incursion

On the 12th & 15th March, Toby from Bee Aware came and spoke to the children about bees, especially native bees including the tickle bees otherwise known as native stingless bees that we have at kindy.

The children learnt if there were no bees we wouldn’t be able to eat fruit, as many of the fruits we love like strawberries, oranges and blueberries rely on bees. Stinging Bees only sting because they are scared. If you stand still and just watch them, then you probably won’t get stung.

We found out how bees collect and make the honey and also how to ‘rob’ the hives; including a live demonstration.┬áThe honey that was collected was then poured into a jar. The best bit – we all had the opportunity to taste this yummy honey both straight from the hive and from the jug of collected honey. The children were fascinated.

2018 Annual Family BBQ

A fantastic time was had by all at the Annual Family BBQ held on Friday 16th March. Families enjoyed catching up and also meeting each other, all while enjoying a BBQ dinner. The kids had a wonderful time with entertainment, treats and of course, each other! A huge effort from staff and parents alike made this night an enjoyable success!
