Primary schools learning the importance of farming

Mon, 25 Apr 2016


Ramsey Grammar School's taking its livestock on a road show to northern primary schools. 
 
The high school has been teaching 'rural sciences' to their students for over 30 years - a course unique to the Isle of Man.
 
The students look after and tend to various farm animals which are housed on the school grounds - with the produce used and sold within the school.
 
A group of students and teachers will now be taking some one of their ewes and some new born lambs into five primary schools in a fun way of preparing the students for secondary education.
 
Marion Cottier is the head of rural sciences:
