Five Pearson College students spent a week on the Parry Bay Sheep farm during lambing season.

More than 300 lambs have been born this year and the students watched the glorious and a little gooey miracle of birth. They learned to clean the after birth of the baby lambs, paint them, dock their tails and care for them and their mothers.

Aside from working outdoors with the lambs the students were also required to help out around the Metchosin home and cook meals. The lived with John and Lorraine Buchanan for the week.
