Congratulations to St Catherine's Primary School on being selected as a Regional Winner of the Primary Awards for Green Education in Schools 2023 with your project ‘St. Catherine's Bee Club’. Almost 40,000 young people were involved in the creation of entries for this year’s competition.
It was fantastic to see the diverse approaches that schools in the UK are taking to delivering environmental education to their children. The young people’s passion and commitment really shone through! With almost 300 entries received, being selected to win a Regional Winner’s award is a real achievement! We thought Bee Club looked amazing! It's fantastic to see children so actively involved in looking after bees. To produce 23kg of honey in your first year of beekeeping was quite an achievement!
We very much hope that Bee Club continues to thrive and do please update us next year! As a winner of PAGES 2023, St Catherine's Primary School wins a £500 prize and can access a free place on Better Planet Schools, YPTE’s new online platform for environmental education. It’s packed full of great lesson plans and ideas for activities to encourage child-led action and behaviour change. Congratulations once again to all of the children and staff who took part in the creation of your entry. Well done Mrs Parish and Mrs Bishop and Bee Club for their hard work and well-earned success!!
