At Dąbrowskiego we understand that children learn best when they are having fun, interested and excited by what they are doing and building on what they already know and can do. As part of the topics studied in Reception and Year 1 we were visited by Dr Robert Rozalski on Wednesday where he did a fabulous presentation about bees, their function and how honey is made.
Dr Rozalski clearly has a passion for bees and is serious about educating young and old about this very interesting minibeast. He has a university background in animal science and after graduating, started to work as an assistant professor in the Animal Genetics and Breeding Department. In 1993 he was awarded the Monbukagakusho Scholarship by the Japanese Ministry of Education and went to the Gifu University in Japan. As a research fellow he studied genetical and behavioural diversity of the Japanese native honey bees in the department of
Insects Physiology. In 1998 he completed his doctorate in this field. Recently Dr Rozalski has been working on creating an ecological apiary near Warsaw. His main interest is focused on honeybee breeding and health aspects of the bee products. You will be able to sample their delicious honey at the Polish stall at International Carnival at Limanowskiego on Saturday. We are very thankful to Dr Rozalski and Ms Betty for the effort they put into enhancing the learning for our students and for taking the time to come to our setting to engage with our students.
