The Bee Aware program is run in conjunction with the All Ireland Pollinator Plan and is a Roscommon County Council funded workshop, therefore free to primary schools. It is a two hour workshop on pollinators and Bees in particular.  It involves a question and answer session along with some colouring to help children to identify different Bumblebees.  Then there is a second session (after break) where the children come up with ideas on how to make their school grounds more pollinator friendly.  It's designed to cater for 30 children and is aimed at 3rd to 6th class.

Please visit https://pollinators.ie/schools/ to view the How-to-guide Develop a Pollinator Plan for your school for the teacher to look at and to give them some ideas prior to the workshop. There are 2 workshops available to schools in Co Roscommon and these will be allocated on a first come first serve basis.
