This incursion was probably the best incursion we have ever had in the school. The content fit in perfectly with what we are teaching the students about bees and the skills we are looking at in Geography. I would highly recommend it!
Teacher Balgowlah Nth PS August 2017
I liked it because it was very interactive and taught me a lot about the different types of bees. –

Year 1 Teacher Hornsby North PS Oct 2017
Very interesting; lots of unknown facts.
Teacher Miranda PS Nov 2017
Our year 3’s were captivated by Abbie’s fascinating facts about bees. They loved checking out all of the different specimens Abbie brought in too. The highlight of the day by far was definitely the hands-on opportunity for the students to build their very own bee hotels. It allowed for the important skill of team work to flourish and the results were amazing. Overall it was a fun filled day with lots of learning opportunities. Abbie was so knowledgeable and her enthusiasm was infectious. Thank you for a wonderful day Abbie!
Samantha Zivic (Teacher Our Lady of Angels Primary School)
Abbie and her fun presentation on native bees inspired our children and added so much to their knowledge of pollination. We have a large vegetable garden and orchard here in which the children spend allocated lesson time each week. We have spent the winter looking at pollination, seeds and flower parts whilst doing the Primary Connections unit Plants in Action. This workshop ties in nicely with the unit. Thank you Abbie! Kimberley Moule (Garden Specialist, Berrima public school) August 2016
Thank you to you and your team at Kids Connecting Nature for running a fantastic and informative workshop for our primary students! It was amazing to discover so many wonderful facts about bees, especially Australian bees. The students thoroughly enjoyed all the activities, especially creating and painting their bee hotels…and some have already been put to good use! We will treasure this enriching experience for a long time.
Denise Cronin (Teacher, Southern Cross Baptist School) October 2016
You should have a bee incursion in the classroom, because you can learn a truckload of things: like how to make a fantastic bee house. The bee house will let bees have somewhere to rest and lay their eggs, especially bees who cannot fly long distances. I like how the bee house looked after we painted it. We learned a lot and so did our teachers. The day was awesome.
Caitlyn, Year 1 OLMC Oct 2016
My favourite bee is the teddy bear bee. I liked participating with my partner.
Tony, Year 1 OLMC
Abbie the bee lady came to our school she taught us how to use a hammer and nails to build a bee house. We all cooperated together as a team to make a bee house.
Georgia, Year 1 OLMC
I made a bee hive. I used a hammer and nails, with the nails and hammer I hammered it in. I think Abbie should visit other schools so they can learn all about the bees too.
