Over the past two weeks, Lower First (kindergarten) have been looking after little baby chickens. It was a great learning experience for the children as they were able to see the chicks actually hatch out of their eggs. We also learnt how to take care of the chicks which involved cleaning out their cage every day and making sure they were warm enough, with enough food and water. We played with the chicks, gave them all names and lots of love. Fortunately we found homes for all 10 chicks who are now being looked after by people in our school community. Thank you to all those who are taking care of the chicks.
