Farm lessons for stu­dents

Airdrie & Coatbridge Advertiser - - Court Case­book -

Pupils from Buchanan High had a taste of farm­ing life on two vis­its to learn more about where their food comes from.

First years from the Coat­bridge school headed to South Shields farm in Strathaven to learn how the pigs, sheep and goats are bred and reared; and went on to sam­ple sausages and burg­ers from the farm shop.

They then had an­other trip, this time to Easter­house farm in New­mains, where they watched the robotic milk­ing of cows and learned about the work in­volved in dairy farm­ing.

So­cial sub­jects teacher Christine King said:“We’re grate­ful to both farm­ers for tak­ing time out of their busy sched­ules to give pupils these valu­able learn­ing ex­pe­ri­ences, and to Kris Pater­son of the Royal High­land Ed­u­ca­tional Trust for or­gan­is­ing the vis­its.”
