Learning to care for animals
Mrs Moulton, Lead Practitioner at St Michael's, has helped to create several Farms across the North West for a number of schools and has seen the many benefits for both pupils and the wider community. She said "School Farms as a resource bring such interest and enrichment to our young people. They enhance learning and help pupils develop a sense of responsibility"
Pupils will be able to study animal care in Year 10 this September and will learn to care for animals according to the 5 Freedoms in collaboration the RSPCA. One of the first sessions will be given by a Lead Inspectors who has visited the School last term and was very supportive.
We will be breeding our own flock of rare breeds North Ronaldsay Sheep, and keeping a variety of poultry and small animals.
Look out for our first Open Day on the Farm this term and come see for yourself!
We are hoping to go bag packing at a local supermarket and pupils are volunteering to complete sponsored events to help us raise the money needed before half term!
