Camden Haven High School

Yesterday, Zoe from the Education Team visited Camden Haven High School as part of the Hastings Council Grant for RSPCA Education in the Port Macquarie area.

Zoe spent the morning at Camden Haven HS's fantastic Agriculture Plot, talking to Ag Students and meeting all the local residents. Camden Haven students are lucky to have such a fantastic Ag Plot with such dedicated and enthusiastic Ag teachers.

Students get the chance to work with a wide variety of farm animals from chickens, turkeys, guinea fowl, to sheep, cows, pigs, a donkey and even a buffalo!  Students also grow their own vegetables and herbs, and assist with farm maintenance such as fencing.
The two newest residents are a Brumby and foal, who were part of the National Parks capture scheme and who have been lucky enough to be rehomed at Camden Haven HS.  They have been farriered, groomed and are currently on a special diet to help them regain weight.
