Hobbledown Farm by Dublin S Class

On Monday 2nd December, Dublin S class visited Hobbledown Farm.

As part of our BTEC course, we had to plan and carry out a visit and make sure we participated in all the activities. We worked as a class team to arrange the staffing for the trip, complete a risk assessment, work out how to get to Hobbledown Farm and then plan what to do when we were there. We also took part in workshops where we handled a rabbit called Carrot and a guinea pig called Jedi. They were adorable and cuddly. We also fed the goats, two of whom were named Pitta and Houmous!

We had a great day and would love to go again in the summer when the outside equipment and zorbing activities are open.

Carew is an amazing school for our son, he now shines academically and his social skills are outstanding since being part of Carew.  Most of all they understand his needs and support him daily.
