Spud and Society arrived at their new lodgings this week and were right at home in their brand new calf enclosure. Charlie has rebuilt the calf shed and the Cows Create Careers class worked with him to set up the yard and run. Peter Fulton has loaned two calves to the CCC class for the duration of the Dairy Australia competition so the students can be responsible for them and report on their care and growth for the next three weeks. Welcome Spud and Society!
Continuing the Year 9 Science study into how organisms interact in their environment, our students investigated apiculture - beekeeping and honey production. Studies included learning about the behavior of bees, the transfer of energy, production of honey and diseases or threats that bees may face. The Year 9 science students recently presented their posters identifying what factors affect bee population and size in an ecosystem and topics included Extreme weather conditions for bees, Bee aware of pesticides and Pathogens that affect bees
