July 1 @ 11:45 am - 12:45 pm

Collingwood Children’s Farm – School Excursion – single class

Welcome to the Collingwood Children’s Farm Education Program.

With Farm tours, hands-on workshops and self-guided experiences, all aligned to the Victorian Curriculum, your students will discover a program that is informative, engaging and rewarding.

Every Friday during term time, we offer a program for a single class of up to 30 people (students plus adults.)

The class activity can be a Farm Tour or a Hands-on Gardening Workshop. The workshop will involve each student planting a seed to take home with them.

The educational theme can be either Meet & Greet or Paddock to Plate.

Meet and Greet

Students will get a chance to observe and interact with some of our animals while focusing on farm vocabulary.

Students will use their senses while exploring the Farm, learning about how we take care of our animals and what they need to be healthy and happy.

This tour is designed for kinder and Foundation students, or students who may not have been to a farm before.

For more information, please see our website.

Paddock to Plate

Students will get a chance to observe and interact with some of our animals while learning about the food and fibre products that they provide us with.

Students will learn to use correct terminology for the animals and understand how some products are altered for human use.

This tour is linked to the Victorian Curriculum Levels 1 and 2, and is best suited to lower-middle primary students.

For more information, please see our website.

Collingwood Children’s Farm is a non-profit community organisation.

Your excursion fee keeps our Education Program financially sustainable and helps us care for our animals, conserve our heritage farmland, and fund inclusive programs to support those experiencing adversity.

Thank you for your support!
