Foundation Excursion to Bundoora Farm

13 October 2023

The first two of our Foundation classes visited Bundoora Farm on Wednesday’s beautiful and warm weather day where they were engaged in variety of fun farm activities. The excursion was part of their learning unit on "the basic needs of living things".

During our amazing excursion to Bundoora Farm, our youngest students had the most incredible time being surrounded by the cutest farm animals you can imagine! We got the chance to get up close and personal with the sheep, goats, horses, donkeys, kangaroos, emus, guinea pigs, rabbits and even alpacas and llamas! It was such a hands-on experience on feeding some animals and patting them, making compost, gardening and watering the plants that made us truly appreciate the hard work and dedication of farmers. We couldn't help but burst into laughter as mischievous turkeys chased us around, adding an extra dose of fun to the day.

We also had a special time to make scones and eat them. Yum!!! Not only did we have a blast, but we also learned so much about living things in the farm and the different roles that each animal plays on the farm. It was a truly unforgettable adventure that brought us closer to nature and helped us understand the importance of caring for animals and the environment.
