Chickens

At St Benedict’s we care for chickens as part of our science focus. The students are in charge of caring for them on a daily basis and have grown in their learning about animals.

The students played a huge role through their inquiry unit, to research chickens and how to look after them,   The chicken coop and surrounding garden was built and continues to be sustained by the voluntary efforts of our parents.  Raffle tickets for the eggs our chickens produce are also sold and then a winner is drawn at the weekly Assembly.  The funds raised are donated to various charity organisations.
