“In having contact with animals, children will learn the joys of life, fun and optimism. Animals invite us to laugh and play, and in doing so this stimulates the secretions of endorphins in the brain which makes us happier and reduces pain and stress.” 

Dr. McCulloch

 

During the summer term, students spend time at our School Farm where they learn at first hand about animal husbandry, food production and conservation.
We have chickens, rabbits and goats and an insect hotel. We also have a beehive some 400 metres from the school which produces beautiful alpine honey every year.
The School Farm helps develop a young person’s capacity to nurture and care for their environment. Sustainable practices such as composting, water recycling and waste reduction go hand in hand with learning about the needs of farmers, how life cycles work and the changes of the seasons.
