The School Grounds We'd Like

The children have been inspired by finding out about how the children in their partner school, Kafuro Primary School in Uganda live.  In Uganda, bees are valued as a source of honey, as pollinators for crops and because they help to keep large animals like elephants away from the village.  The children have raised over £1,000 to buy bee hives and beekeeping equipment for Liss Junior School.  Alongside this, they have worked hard to make their school grounds attractive to bees, planting bee-friendly flowers and plants.  Their cob oven (made from clay and straw using traditional techniques) was another major project and it’s clear that they are enjoying the pizzas they can cook in it!
