The Farm

Finding Inspiration in Every Turn

Agriculture is the basis of civilization. As students embark on their secondary education they will visit a working farm. They will spend one morning a week working on the farm. This will include mucking out stables, helping with repairs. caring for animals as well as studying the animals and the environment  around them. The farm work develops teamwork, communication and enhances well-being. It also importantly provides real life experiences for further study, ensuring topics like biology, geography, maths and much more are brought to life. The adolescent guide joins students on the farm and helps them link work back to their studies.  

Photos below show the farm that the students will be working on.

"Therefore work on the land is an introduction both to nature and to civilization and gives a limitless field for scientific and historic studies. If the produce can be used commercially this brings in the fundamental mechanism of society, that of production and exchange, on which economic life is based. This means that there is an opportunity to learn both academically and through actual experience what are the elements of social life"

Maria Montessori
