Cydney the Lamb

posted 24 Aug 2017, 17:54 by Web Admin
On Thursday of last week I had three of our students come racing up to the office with very excited calls to come quickly and see what had happened. There was a new lamb born to one of our sheep, Adelaide. The children had an impromptu lesson in what was that thing hanging from the lamb’s tummy (the umbilical cord), what did it do, how would the little lamb know how to drink. This was a very natural sex education lesson that will allow those present to experience the miracle of birth in such a natural, delightful way. This is something that country children like myself grow up with, developing a healthy understanding of birth and death through the care of animals. I am so thrilled that our children here are experiencing nature’s wonders first hand as I did as a little girl.
