We are extremely happy to announce an expansion of the St Edward’s family today. On the School Farm, Sandy, one of our Golden Guernsey goats, has given birth to two healthy kids! Year 3T were fortunate enough to pay them a visit this afternoon in the beautiful Spring sunshine. With our other goat, Goldie, also expecting, we look forward to sharing more happy news in the very near future.
The new arrivals join the two existing goats, three alpacas and brood of chickens resident on our Farm. Having the Farm onsite allows us to provide our pupils with hands-on experience of caring for animals.
Farm Club runs every lunchtime and, over the course of the academic year, each Year group has an opportunity to get involved. Members of the Club take responsibility for a variety of tasks including cleaning out the enclosures, replenishing water and hay, and giving the animals food.
We encourage all our pupils to be mindful of their environmental responsibility and have respect for the world around them. Farm Club is just one of the ways in which we can help to further their understanding of the importance of environmental issues.
