We cater to all age groups; from pre-schoolers to tertiary students, school holiday programmes, ESL and special needs groups.

Bullswool Heritage Farm offers an exceptional Learning Outside the Classroom experience. Visits are a mixture of curriculum-based learning, practical skills development, and hands-on rural fun. Visits are well-structured and organised, with excellent facilities for large groups. Every effort is made to make visits run smoothly, and the resources provided make planning and organising as easy as possible for teachers.  

Visits are fun and relaxed, and are a high point of the learning year for students, staff and parents alike.

Teachers of Students Years 1 - 4

Teachers are busy people! For this reason, we have created a complete Lesson Plan and resources to help make it easy to gain maximum benefit from visits.

Our professionally developed Level 1 and 2 “Needs of Sheep” Learning Unit is based on the New Zealand science curriculum.  All materials are supplied upon booking. The Teaching Resources are designed to provide learning support before, during, and after your school’s visit.

For Preschoolers Visits, please visit our Pre-School Group Visit page.
