School welcomes new feathered friends
PUPILS from Hans Price Academy have welcomed 10 new additions to their school this month – a brood of chickens.
The hens are being looked after in the school’s gardens and their eggs will be sold to raise money for the school’s garden club.
The school will soon let people adopt the chickens with the aim of expanding to goats in the future.
The hens join rabbits and guinea pigs in the garden, which also has a plot where pupils grow their own vegetables.
Helen Bliss, higher level teaching assistant at the school, said: “They absolutely love the chickens and it teaches them about animals.

“They have been really excited, even helping to muck them out.
“The children are really taking an interest in where their food comes from and are certainly taking a greater interest in their environment.”
