Ben the hungry goat has plenty to teach the kids

News | Published:

A GOAT popped into St Peter's School yesterday to show children a novel way of getting the garden weeded.

Ben, a Golden Guernsey goat who normally lives on a farm at Noirmont, munched his way through brambles in the undergrowth as he visited the school as part of an educational trip.

The visit was arranged by teaching assistant and eco-active co-ordinator Danny Simon, who said that the opportunity to meet Ben also gave the children the chance to learn about animal welfare.

The children also wore unusual socks on their bodies yesterday to mark World Down Syndrome Day.

Along with thousands of children around the world, the pupils were asked to wear brightly coloured socks or three socks to represent the additional chromosome that causes the Down Syndrome condition.
