As you may know, the Queen Elizabeth PAC arranged for a honeybee hive to be installed at the school in 2022. Unfortunately, our contract is up, and with the new construction of the addition to the school and the disruption that will come with that, our bees will be leaving the school at the end of February.
The program was well received over the last 2 years and many students were able to experience the education component of the program and watch along as the bee keepers attended the site to check on the bees. Along with this amazing educational experience came some jars of honey produced each year by the bees from the school.
The small glass jars are filled with 100ml of local honey harvested right from our very own hives.
We are opening up the sale of honey on a first come first serve basis.
Please note that the first 45 orders will come with a custom Queen Elizabeth Elementary School logo. The remaining 100 jars are un-labeled and available for you to add your own personal touches. A great way to have your student do up their own fun label to add and keep for yourself or gift to family and friends.
Orders will be open from now until Monday March 4th and will go home with students before Spring Break.
Jars are being sold for $10.00 each and will be available to purchase on school cash online.
Thank you for your support.
