The School Holidays are now in full swing, and we have just welcomed our first group of Farmers for the Day, and our very first group of Young Writers. Both groups enjoyed a great day down on the Farm, getting up and close with the animals and making pizzas in our pizza oven!
We also welcomed Lyndal Ihle, to the Barn for a reading of her children's book 'A Rainbow of Fun'. A heartwarming story about love, courage and rainbow underpants which was enjoyed by all. See her again on Tuesday 16th April
Most days throughout the holidays we have craft activities in the Stables paddock or in the Barn, so come along and get creative!
