Kindergarten Excursion to Calmsley Farm

To tie in with our unit of study for Term 2, ‘Interrelationships and Changes’, Kindergarten students will participate in an excursion to Calmsley Hill City Farm in Abbotsbury, Sydney. The purpose of this excursion is to provide students with the opportunity to learn about the interrelated components (animals and plants) and products of a farm. The students will observe how plants and animals grow and change, how their needs are met and will learn about what is produced on a farm. In addition, students will have the opportunity to milk a cow, pet farmyard animals and watch a sheep shearing demonstration.

When:                                 Monday 13th May, 2019 (Term 2, Week 3)

Transport:                           Students will travel to and from Calmsley Hill City Farm by coaches which are fitted with seatbelts.  Please be at school, under the COLA, no later than 8.30am as the buses will be leaving at 8:45am sharp. We will return to school by 3:15pm.

Cost:                                      $35.00 (includes buses and program fee)

Uniform:                              Bellevue Hill Public School uniform and school hat. Please pre-apply sun cream.

What to bring:                  Please pack recess and lunch, including a disposable drink, in a small bag and ensure that all items are labelled. Do not bring glass bottles or containers. If it looks like it may rain, students should have a raincoat clearly labelled with your child’s name.  We ask that students do not bring any money on the excursion as we will not be visiting the farm souvenir shop.

Parent Volunteers:         To assist on the day, classes are invited to have 2 parent volunteers. If you are able to volunteer your time, please send in a note to your classroom teacher.                   

Please also be aware that you must hold a volunteer working with children check.
