Opening of Brockhill Park Performing Arts College new Farm Eco Classroom, 9th June, 2013
Mrs Ros McCarthy DL represented the Lord- Lieutenant at the Opening of Brockhill Park Performing Arts College brand new Farm Eco Classroom. This took place on Sunday 9th June which was Open Farm Sunday, a national event.
The School is a Comprehensive Secondary School and is extremely fortunate to have a school farm stocked with cattle, sheep, pigs, horses and a range of small animals. The students are engaged in the life of a working farm in various ways and the school also offers an Animal Care Diploma. The Opening Event included a tour of the new farm facilities which have all been funded by events that the Young Farmers have organised. Mrs McCarthy said that she very much enjoyed the whole occasion, it was very well organised and the students’ contribution was most impressive.
