Pompallier School Visit

Mana Kai was given a warm welcome by Pompallier school pupils this July after being invited into the school to talk about Mana Kai and bee awareness. Our team at Mana Kai enjoyed educating the students about the work we are involved in and the incredible life of bees. Each student was invited and delighted to try some of Mana Kai’s delicious honey.

On top of learning all about the secret life of bees and the incredible impacts they have on our environment, the students did an incredible impression of the bee waggle dance. The waggle dance is a term used in beekeeping and ethology for a particular figure-eight dance of the honey bee. By performing this dance, successful foragers can share information about the direction and distance to patches of flowers yielding nectar and pollen, to water sources, or to new nest-site locations with other members of the colony.

The students responded to Mana Kai’s informative visit by asking many enthusiastic questions, which showed their eagerness to learn more about our local honey company. Mana Kai felt privileged to be able to spend time with the pupils at Pompallier school and are looking forward to the next visit.
