Farm

Our charming farm entrance is just a stone's throw from the main school building. The farm is 1400ha in size, with 600ha being intertwined with the Koedoe-reserve. Students get firsthand experience putting theory into practice by working on the farm. Practicals include a range of activities from milking the cows, cleaning the pigsties, looking for snares and broken fences on the game reserve, and learning valuable trade skills like welding and metalwork.

Our sheeps wool is mainly used for wool-school, hosted by BKB, for the grade 10 - 12 learners every year. During wool school, students learn how to throw, analyse, and class wool.

Cows

Our cows produce about 700 litres of milk every day. The majority of the milk gets used in the hostel with the rest getting sold.
