News – Kilsyth Academy Beehive Decorating Project Part Two:

Buzz, March 18, 2015

Green Legacy project participants, Kilsyth Academy are taking on the responsibility of a hive, having participated in a series of talks and beekeeping lessons given by Plan Bee Ltd. All schools that take part in this eco-initiative receive a blank beehive that they are encouraged to create a design for and then paint – we wrote earlier about North Lanarkshire schools Kilsyth Academy and Braidhurst High, choosing and developing their themes in earlier articles.

Fitting the Design Brief

S1 classes then selected the designs they thought fit the design brief best and the chose the following:

Now these fantastic hive designs have been approved – let the painting commence. You can see the whole process illustrated below. We’d like to say thanks to all staff and pupils at Kilsyth Academy involved in this worthwhile project who have taken to it with great enthusiasm to produce some stunning designs!
