Calmsley Hill (formerly Fairfield City Farm) provides a richly diverse learning environment for Primary & High School students. Set upon 160ha.Calmsley Hill is striving to be a fully sustainable site. We have progressively developed programs for all ages on the key elements of sustainability, water, waste, land and energy. Calmsley Hill has worked closely with a range of environmental, government and educational bodies such as Greening Australia, Primary Industries Education Foundation, National Parks and Wildlife, The Western Sydney Parklands Trust and a number of University Groups, to ensure that all course offer a board range of information. Most importantly courses have been developed by teachers within the industry to meet the requirements of the curriculum. The team at Calmsley Hill are more than happy to design educational programs tailored to your learning outcome requirements.
Starting with Infants we have our Down on the Farm tour as an introduction to the farm and animals including a range of native animals.
For Primary aged children we have our stage 2 and 3 programs which include Endangered and Unique, Sustainable Food and A Big Sydney.
High School Geography students can get involved in hands on field work with our stage 4, 5 and 6 programs whilst Science and Sustainability student can work on their stage 5 & 6 fieldwork. Agricultural programs are available on request to suit your educational needs as with all our programs they focus on fieldwork and hands on learning.
All programs include pre and post visit work activities, including source materials which will add to the students learning experience during their fieldwork studies on the day at the farm.
Open Everyday 9.00am to 4.30pm (except Good Friday, Christmas Day, New Years Eve and New Years Day). Please see website for more details.
