Almost 90% of wild plants and 75% of leading global crops depend on animal pollination – that’s ONE out of every THREE mouthfuls of our food!

The SMC environmental group coming to you with a new fundraising initiative - Adopt a bee!

We have some new friends at school, located in the beehive next to the science block. In order to support this hive and other environmental initiatives, we have started the Adopt a Bee mission, where St Mary’s College students, whanau and friends have the opportunity to help fund this cause by “adopting” their own bee and naming it.

All donations will be acknowledged with a named bee icon on our fabulous Bee Wall in the CM Block.

You can adopt a:
