Students took off on our much anticipated outing to the Kelmscott Senior High School Farm!
We dressed like real farmers in checked shirts, jeans, straw hats and gum boots and we travelled on a bus all the way to Kelmscott Farm, where we met Farmer Rick.
We experienced many different aspects of life on the farm.
We gave the Alpacas a gentle pat and felt their very woolly coats. We watched Farmer Rick feed some pigs and we got to feed some hungry sheep and some cheeky goats. We collected chicken eggs and talked to the hens who had a lot to say with their constant cluck, cluck, clucking!
Farmer Rick showed us how to put chicken feed on the tops of our shoes and the hens pecked the food off our shoes – it tickled!
We cuddled fluffy bunnies and baby chicks and the bunnies felt cosy on our laps and lots of them feel asleep!
We also watched Molly the cow get milked by the milking machine and Farmer Rick talked to us about all the foods that come from Molly’s milk, such as yoghurt, cheese, cream, butter and even ice cream and chocolate!
Kelly took us for a walk around the farm and we saw sheep, goats, two calves, some horses and the big vegetable garden.
We were very tired after our outing and some of us nearly fell asleep on the bus! We had such a great day!
Thanks to our parent helpers; Ms Giglia, Mrs Gates, Mrs Lucente, Mrs Papalia and Mrs Shine and also a big thank you to Farmer Rick at Kelmscott Senior High School Farm and his students. A really great experience for all!
