We have won please do not go to the council. We have been re-zoned. The minster will come to the farm at a later time
Can we please thank Mr Rockcliff Minister for education for his support of the farm. Can we also refrain from personal attacks on Mr Foster or any other councilor at this afternoons council meeting as this will harm our case. Thank you

Why The School Farm Should Stay Where It Is! Hi, my name is Sylvia Chandler; I am in grade ten and have been attending the school farm for the past three years. The school farm has helped me a lot with my education and has helped me with making friends, that like the same things I do. At the moment I’m doing cert 1 in Agrifoods and I’m hoping to do cert2 next year, I have learnt a lot about animals and what farmers do to maintain their land. I have learnt how loud piglets can squeal, which is very loud, because they don’t like being picked up. At the moment the school farm Hampshire Down ewes have just had their lambs. I have been enjoyed helping Stuart Cordwell with bringing lambs into the world and helping the ewes with feeding their lambs. I have recently watched our lambs being weighed, tagged, vaccinated and tails being docked. I’ve been on the sheep team for three years and I have participated in lots of shows all over the state. I have helped mentor younger students on how to prepare and show sheep and have answered a lot of questions from younger students about sheep and the farm. I have helped raise money for the farm, at shows and farm fetes, so the farm can feed the animals and maintain the farm. I love going to the farm, because it gets me away from busy school life. The students at the farm act like one big family and I am very proud to be part of that family. The farm should stay where it is because we are not harming anyone.
Save Our School Farm Hi, my Dannielle Chandler, and this is my fourth year attending Bridgewater High School/Jordan River School Farm. When I first started going to the farm I was in grade six, I was afraid of most farm animals, shy and quite, I had zero self-confidence and I was really self-conscience. One day Ms. Brown came into school and talked to my grade and many other grades about joining the sheep or cattle team or animal nursery team, she basically said, ‘Who wants to wake up at six in the morning and muck out the shed?’, ‘Who wants to build a bond with an animal that you will cherish for the rest of your life?’, ‘Who wants to be a part of our family?’ and of course I said yes. I joined the cattle team with a bunch of other students in my grade. My first cow was Boomer Creek Nika, she was the naughtiest cow we had, but to me she was beautiful, I built a massive bond with Nika and Ms. Brown was right I will cherish my memories with her and all the other heifers and other animals at the farm for the rest of my life. I decided to continue going to the farm for the rest of my school years and promisedmyself once I left I would support the farm in any way possible as it has supported me. At Hamilton show we say goodbye to our heifers. Saying goodbye to Nika was one of the hardest things I did, but in a way it was a good thing because saying goodbye meant meeting all the other beautiful heifers that I have come to love during my time at the school farm. Throughout my years attending the farm I have seen and learnt many things that I would have never learnt at school, the farm has helped me figure out what I want to do with my life, which is become a farmer and through the farm I am reaching that goal. I am studying for my cert 1 in Agrifoods through the farm and I hope to also complete my cert 2 Agrifoods through the farm as well. When you first visit or join the farm you can see how close everyone is, like a family. I saw it when I first joined and now I am a part of that family. Since I started at the farm, I got over my fear of animals and now have an understanding of them, I am no longer shy, I’m confident and outgoing and I am no longer self-consciences I am proud of who I am and that I attend the farm. And I don’t believe that I would have ever conquered my fears and became the person I am without the farm. Myself and others have put so much hard work and effort into this farm. When I show my cows, I feel like I am on top of the world and nothing can bring me down, without the farm I won’t have that feeling of freedom, accomplishment and pride. The farm is what keeps me sane, I look forward to the days I have at the farm more than anything else in the week, if the farm gets taken, I don’t think I will be able to cope with school as well as what I do. Joining the farm is the best decision I have made in my life, and if I could go back in time I would do it all over again. The farm benefits so many people; we have primary school kids come in for tours and the way their faces light up when they see the animals is pure amazement, we attend shows all over the state putting on a show for the crowd, people with learning difficulties come to our farm and actually learn something because they feel safe and not pressured. We want to continue helping people in our community. Thank you to Ms. Brown, Stuart, Sally, Tom, Daniel, Andrew, Ariel and all the friends of the farm for running such an incredible farm and teaching us some of the most important life skills there is. It’s not just a farm.... It’s a home. It’s not just a team.... It’s a family
