THE INITIATIVE FOR THE EUROPEAN HONEY BREAKFAST
In Slovenia, every third Friday in November there is a special day called the Slovenian Food Day which starts with Traditional Slovenian Breakfast. The breakfast consists of locally produced food: bread, butter, milk, apples, and – of course! – honey. Throughout Slovenia, the Honey Breakfast campaign was initiated by the Slovenian Beekeepers' Association eight years ago.
On 20 November 2015, all the students of our school had a natural science day. First they gathered to have Traditional Slovenian Breakfast, and later they explored the topics regarding the significance of the locally produced food and its consumption.
The Slovenian Beekeepers' Association introduced their Honey Breakfast campaign outside Slovenia's borders too, and this year their initiative has already been welcomed by many countries. Have you joined the campaign already, and if not, why don’t you join it next year too? :-)

THE INITIATIVE FOR THE WORLD BEE DAY
The Slovenian Beekeepers' Association proposes to the United Nations that May 20th is declared World Bee Day. They launched an educational promotional campaign to raise public awareness of the importance of bees and beekeeping throughout the European Union.
On Thursday, 3 December 2015, the representatives of the Slovenian Beekeepers' Association visited our local beekeepers' society (i. e. Čebelarsko društvo Slivnica pri Celju). Since some of our students are active in this society too, we had the opportunity to attend the event and take a photo in front of the promotional van. In this photo you can see the president of the Slovenian Beekeepers' Association, Mr Boštjan Noč, together with our students and teachers. We seized this opportunity to send greetings to our partner schools too. :-)
In the name of bees, you are invited to join the World Bee Day campaign too! Please take a photo of your students showing us that you support World Bee Day. In the photo you can use the following logo or/and the picture of our students with the promotional van.
