Landsdale Farm Launches!

In mid-2017 (prior to the recent announcement about the withdrawal of funding for Landsdale Farm); we negotiated with our good friends at Landsdale Farm, a unique and exciting initiative for our Middle School and College students for Term 3, 2018. The team have allowed us to book 16 days (2 days per/week) for Middle School and College students to spend a full day p/week each at the farm; culminating in a five day camp at the farm!

This week, students enjoyed their first full day at Landsdale Farm… starting with the first of many “Survivor” challenges! We will be engaged in a wide range of activities and projects at the farm and hope to offer support to the amazing Landsdale team in any way possible.

Our secondary teaching staff have completed professional development at Landsdale Farm over the last months in order to maximise the integration of learning across the Year 7-12 program/curriculum!

I am genuinely excited about this opportunity and can’t wait to see the connections, conversations, interactions and pathways that will open as a result of extended time on the ground to develop a deeper relationship with a unique outdoor place/space and a richer connection with nature’s treasures.

No doubt the farm’s work (and hope) to retain funding for the future (or perhaps another partnership?) will be a powerful provocation for our teenagers too!

If you would like to know more about Landsdale Farm you can visit their website at https://landsdale-farm-school.com.au – We can not thank the Landsdale Staff and Management enough for their positive partnership!
