Our Level 2 and 3 Agriculture first year students took part in a stock judging task down at our Low Beckside farm last week! It was only their second day! 🐑🌳
‘I’ve not had so much fun in ages…’ Entry 2 & 3 Practical Countryside Skills students – some new, some returning for their second year have all been busy during Induction week so as we like to work hard we also like to play hard - finishing off with a trip to McDonald’s at Penrith then a visit to Carlisle – many thanks to the staff at both places who were really pleasant and helpful. Earlier in the week the students were set the task to make the tallest, sturdiest tower they could only using newspaper and sellotape. Working in two teams, excellent skills in communication, co-operation and supporting each other was evident. Well done to all, our expectations for the year are high! Great fun had by all.
