At Wandin Yallock we live and breathe our school CARING values and one big part of that is Respect. As human beings we should therefore learn of how to take care of and ‘respect’ Australia's extraordinary flora and fauna. During their time in Farm, we teach our students about sustainability and how to maintain the school grounds and beyond, but also how to grow their own vegetables and take care of our chickens with the one and only Farmer Jill. The produce that students cultivate is then used during cooking activities and sold to people within the community.
We believe that by doing so we are teaching our students how to be global citizens and empower them to make a difference in the world. Our Farm Program is run weekly across the school with many yearly projects that students continue to work on.
