Preppies Farm Excursion

Thoroughly spoilt, that’s we are! In a week of showers and uncertain weather conditions, we were super blessed with a sunshiny, rain-free day for our excursion to Green Valley Farm, just what we had prayed for! Thanks God! We were all able to enjoy the natural surroundings, wander the peaceful paths and see the animals and crops of the GCC Agriculture students. Our sincere thanks to Mrs Cherie MacLeod who was our guide for the day, and Mrs Jade King for opening her farm for our visit. While the ups and downs of the road trip on the bus were a highlight for many of the children, we did do some great learning too. We were able to consider how the needs of the animals were met, how the seasons and weather influenced farm decisions and we saw natural and man-made features too. The children used all of their senses as we listened to the bird songs, smelt the cows, touched the feed to scatter for the hens, tasted finger limes and saw the shiny black coats of the fat cows. We visited the farm in class groups.
