After lots of hive inspections, a huge amount of theory, making frames, new hives and apiary management, they are ready! As well as all the extra work in school they have had to do, each child has had to complete a 'beekeeping diary' produce a piece of project work linked to the BBKA syllabus in their own time and be able to inspect a frame in a hive of bees, telling the examiner what they see, and if it is healthy. There is also an oral part of the exam, where they have to talk to the examiner and answer questions on the syllabus! No mean feat, when our children will be the youngest in the country to ever take the exam!! To say as a school we are proud of their achievements already is an understatement, so all we can do is wish them all lots of luck tomorrow!
