Grade 3/4 Hamilton Farm Camp

In the last days of April, Grade 3/4 headed off to Hamilton for a three day camp at one of our sister schools,  Good Shepherd College in Hamilton.  The Good Shepherd students taught them a lot about farm life, showing them all sorts of activities including shearing a sheep, caring for cows, keeping egg-laying chickens, growing your own vegetables and even running an aquaponics system with fish and eels.  The students also had a great time mixing with the students from the other school, making new friends and playing football and other games.  Favourite memories from the students included riding around the farm in the back of a trailer, seeing a big bonfire and roasting marshmallows around the camp fire! Thank you to Mr Pietsch and the Good Shepherd College staff for organising this great experience, and to all the staff who went along to support the students.
