UISG Year 1 Field Trip to Huiling Farm (Nov 2019)
The Y1 students travelled to Huiling farm to get first hand experience of farm life. The students were given the opportunity to visit the pigs and feed goats and a calf. We explored the various crops that had been planted and assisted with some weeding. The students were able to identify different fruit and vegetables while inquiring into what was needed for their survival.
A highlight for many students was the chance to help make the salad and pizza we ate for lunch. We learnt that the people living on the farm eat the fruit and vegetables grown there and that they are all organic!
For many students this was their first experience of a farm and we all returned to school dusty and happy after a day outside exploring.
