Crumlin Youthreach has a new subject on the timetable this year and it’s causing quite a buzzzzz. Some students were nervous to start but majority were quite happy to try QQI L5 Beekeeping. Students spent time on the summer programme researching designs for- and helping to building hives in the woodwork room and for the new apiary at the back of our premises.
The apiary itself is a joint venture between WALK (an organisation that works with adults with intellectual disabilities), Scoil Colm (the local Primary School) and ourselves here at Crumlin Youthreach. It’s a great way of bringing people together in a community project and of course, it’s good for the environment.
The photograph shows two students ‘suited and booted’ for their first trip to the apiary. No students, teachers or wildlife were harmed in this photo-shoot!!
