A little farm at Castlecrag

15 September 2022

As part of the Handwork program Handwork Teacher Elizabeth Ellean organises beautiful sheep, lambs and an alpaca to come and visit the children at Castlecrag Campus. They spend time brushing, feeding and sitting with them, whilst also learning about wool, lanolin and different types of sheep. The children enjoyed such a lovely time and were also able to send feed the younger lambs, some of whom were orphaned at birth. The large Alpaca loves being patted on the neck and the children felt the soft fleece, as well as the oily and strong sheeps wool. They are making their own knitting needles in Class 2 and learning to knit in Class 1 soon, and the journey begins with the sheep!
