St Edward’s Prep School were blessed with the arrival of a Cria (baby alpaca) on the School Farm last week. Pupils have been very excited to see the new arrival and visit the Cria, along with its mother, Ariel.

The new arrival joins the other alpacas, goats and brood of chickens already 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.
