About the Programme

Come along to experience our six-month programme, Bush Farm School. In Spring, in Term 4, we explore life on a New Zealand sheep farm.  In Summer, Term 1, we turn our attention to life in the Bush. In a mixture of free play, exploration and small group structured activities that meet the NZ curriculum, we will cover animal care, flora and fauna, as well as building awareness and sensory acuteness, self-care, quiet mind and empathy. Students will have the opportunity to nurture their connection to the land, learn real-life skills and in time, allow them to feel at home in the natural world.
