The students of Madame Ingrid De Klerk will be busy bees in the garden this spring, after winning a $1,000 prize from BC Hydro's Community Champion program.
BC Hydro announced on Friday, March 14 that the Grade 4 class at TM Roberts will receive $1,000 for their nomination in the program and the sustainability project they will take on this spring.
Madame De Klerk said the students will soon get to work in the school garden, planting pollinating plants to attract bees, as well as edible plants that they hope to enjoy before the school year ends.
The project will also see the students work on a multi-genre writing project all about bees, and go on a field trip to the IDEAL Society in Jaffray in May.
The class showed its support for Columbia Basin Environmental Education Network (CBEEN) by nominating it for a Community Champion award.
While CBEEN was not successful in becoming one of the 2013 finalists, TM Roberts is one of 25 schools across B.C. that was randomly chosen to receive $1,000 for putting forward the nomination.
