In Sustainable Agriculture, taught by Mr. Dan Hayhurst, not only are students taught inside the classroom, but they get to learn outdoors — including on the North Campus farm — introducing a new learning experience and environment for everyone.

The upper form class also teaches environmental and social aspects of farming such as being friendly with the animals and learning how to take care of them.

Furthermore, students also learned about the financial aspect of farming and how important the financial part is to farmers. Through all of these experiences, “students learn and get experience on how to milk a cow, sell some eggs, drive a tractor, back up a trailer, pitch some hay, feed an animal, and lastly, collect some eggs,” Mr. Hayhurst said. Students learn leadership, personal development, and they also learn how to have a good work ethic which will help them later on in life.
