Tokanui School

The year 3 and 4 classes at Tokanui School has received $650 to fund a self-sustaining beehive.

The beehive will become part of the Southland Schools ‘Enviroschools’ programme and will teach the kids about taking care of the environment as well as the significant role that bees play in the ecosystem.

Chairman of the Southland Bee Society and Grandad to one of the students, Murray Christensen, will oversee the maintenance of the beehive and ensure it is producing good honey to sell at the local market.
