We are delighted to share with you an exciting collaboration between the Reprezent Project, Gorleston Apiary, and our school in celebration of Norfolk Day. As part of our "Pollination Art in the Streets" project, our students had the opportunity to paint a beehive for a local entrepreneur, and we would like to share with you pictures taken from the day.

The photography workshop, which was delivered by Ruben Cruz, focused on teaching our students the basic rules of capturing images. With their newfound skills, the students came up with their own creative designs, resulting in a fantastic end result. We believe that these pictures truly showcase the beauty of Norfolk and will surely make you fall in love with this magnificent county.

In addition to the painting project, we are thrilled to announce that The Pavilion Theatre has installed a webcam onto the hive. This means that both locals and our students will be able to monitor the activity of the bees by logging on to a dedicated webcam. This special feature adds an extra dimension to the project, allowing everyone to witness the wonderful world of bees up close.

It is our hope that this beehive will start producing honey by 2024, providing a sustainable and environmentally friendly source of this golden treat.

We are immensely proud of the collaboration in creating the first artistic beehive in Norfolk and Suffolk, and it wouldn't have been possible without the support of local artist Emo, as well as our students. Their dedication and creativity have truly brought this project to life.

We believe that projects like this not only enhance our students' understanding of the importance of pollination and the role of bees in our ecosystem but also provide them with valuable experiences in art and environmental awareness. We are grateful for the opportunity to participate in initiatives that foster a sense of community and environmental responsibility.
