Aims of the project
The project is always looking for volunteers to work round the farm. For the pupils it offers the chance to help others while working closely with animals.
Canford staff drive the pupils to and from the farm; and one teacher stays with the younger group to help the farm staff.
Two 6th form pupils and a larger groups of Year 10 pupils.
Frequency and duration
Help is offered throughout the year. The 6th form pupils attend every Monday for two hours; the Year 10 will go for two hours as well, but not every Monday as this project forms part of their experience over the year.
