Classroom to farmyard

From Nine To Noon, 9:37 am on 20 April 2017

Carterton's Southend school has been awarded almost $30,000 as part of MBIE's "Unlocking Curious Minds" initiative, enabling children at low decile schools to engage in science and technology. The school is spending the money on a project which could transform their Wairarapa school into a working farm school. Parent and project coordinator Emilie Neubauer tells Kathryn Ryan how this is very much in keeping with its Montessori unit, whose philosophy is is learning by doing.
