‘Crack the Code with Maths’ was the theme for the 71st Education Week in Victorian schools. Once again a proud participant of this great initiative was Edgar’s Mission Farm Sanctuary in Lancefield, Victoria. Visiting the Seymour College last Thursday, 120 grade 5 & 6 students were invited to meet animal ambassadors Timmy Sheep and Little Miss Sunshine Hen and ‘run the numbers’. Comparing the environmental impacts of a plant based diet versus animal based diet proved thought provoking for many.
The verdict was summed up best by one student’s poignant words after watching Little Miss Sunshine demonstrate that chickens really do count, “This chicken is awesome!” Timmy sheep was none too far behind either!
