Farm Tour

Today all our families had a lot of fun from Mt Albert Grammar School Farm Tour. A typical farm tour aims at enabling visitors to have hands-on involvement. Our Tamarik and Whanau able to observe the machine milking the cows, bottle feed lamb and feed the hen and so on. Today was a very nice day.

Thank you, all families, coming to our School Farm tour. We were so excited to see how milk came out of a cow. The cow walked very nicely to the machine were it sucked all the milk out of the cow. We saw the milk come out of the cow very quickly and the milk was very white. The milk which came out of the mummy cow we used it to feed nineteen little baby cows. As soon as the milk was tipped the little cows rushed to come and drink it. Those nineteen baby cows were just four to five weeks old. When the baby cows saw the milk being dipped onto the bottle far away they raced to get a sip of milk. The children took turns to feed one-week-old baby lamb with a bottle of milk. The little children held on to the bottle very tight and the lamb responded to the children really well. We also saw two pigs enjoying their food with “oink, oink”.

Our children went into the hen cage where they had hen food and fed them and discovered 13 hung hen eggs. They were very happy to found 13 fresh and big hen eggs. The eggs are all size 8. One of the children got to play with the farm dog the dog was very good and let everybody touch it. Everybody got to wash their hands at the end. Hope everybody had a fun trip today. It was a great learning opportunity for our children to learn alongside others and peers throughout the activity. It was lovely to see most of the children and educators participate in the cow milking and group interactive activity time which was a curriculum-based learning programme.

It was a fun trip to embrace the early spring of Auckland. We all have learnt a lot through this experience! It was a fun trip to embrace the early spring of Auckland.
