School is buzzing to be involved with the #PolliPromise

Spread the love

Pollinator Promise By Saint Alban’s CE Primary!

Join in to save our threatened wildlife!

As a part of St Albans Primary School's involvement in the UK wide, ‘Polli:Nation’ project, they have developed a campaign to spread the message of the importance of pollinators and the need to protect them.

When you sign up to the Pollinator Promise, you pledge to plant pollinatorfriendly plants in a pot or a 1 x 1 metre area in your garden, school grounds or business. Metre by metre, let people know Metre by metre, let pollinators grow!

They worked with Open Air Laboratories (OPAL) to develop a web page and after improving feeding and shelter habitats in our grounds, they went on to support planting in the community, becoming a Bees’ Needs Champion

#PolliPromise

Pollinators such as bees and butterflies are hungry and homeless. A small change from YOU can make a big collective difference. Promise to plant for pollinators at: . https://www.opalexplorenature.org/polli-promise 

Through the Pollinator Promise campaign, children, staff and parents have an increased awareness of the importance of plants for pollinators and together the community has started to bring more colour to local gardens and open spaces.

Pollinator Promise is led by the Hive, the schools pupil voice group. In Hive, they all work as a team, helping pollinators and trying to make the world a better place. Bees aren’t just buzzy things - without them we wouldn’t have most of our fruit and vegetables. Together, they learn to sow seeds and find out about which plants are best for pollinators.

We want people to join us and help give bees a fighting chance.

    Good to see schools moving out of the classroom and in to the gardens. With youngsters like these there is still hope for our wild life.

      No of course not Terry, apologies on the delay approving this comment. We think it’s something truly special seeing the children learn outside instead of the classroom so a big thank you for your positive comment

    Great day yesterday at the EYE project Eco Summit at Worthing High School. An inspiring presentation, well done to you all.
    I went home and made sure my garden had all the correct things and topped up the water in the bird bath too!
