The Good Life Comes to Seal

During the Easter holidays we were due to start the pilot stage of our farm project (introducing 9 rescue chickens and two colonies of bees) but lockdown has meant this has now been delayed.

We are now in a position where we can start to plan for the children's return and how we will support their wellbeing and education and this is just one of the innovative ways we intend to do this.

To get things taking shape by September 2020 we need your help! Please help us raise funds for this project using our Go Fund Me Page (see link below) yourself and/or sharing it with anyone else who might like to support this amazing opportunity for our school community.

This is an exciting and unique opportunity, where our children will have weekly educational sessions and hands on learning with an array of animals.  You will also have the chance to buy their fresh produce too!

We have received initial, external funding for the beginning of our project, to house chickens and bees, from Tesco and One Stop shops. This project will require the support of children, families as well as staff,  in helping to care for these animals (which is a treat in itself!)

This project, which aims to teach children where their food comes from as well as animal husbandry, care and respect, starts as soon as possible in 2020.

It will continue to expand as further funds are raised and plans are created to house further animals. The plan includes animals such as sheep, goats, pigs, ducks, guinea pigs, rabbits and quail.

Please visit our Go Fund Me Page to support this project.
