Egg-cellent Addition: LCS Welcomes Chicks for Sustainable Living
We are pleased to announce the arrival of six adorable baby chicks at LCS this week! These fluffy little creatures were hatched from eggs that have been carefully incubated by Ms. Delevadova's Grade 11 Environmental Science class. After weeks of anticipation, the chicks are finally here, and everyone is “egg-static” to welcome them.
These chicks will soon become an essential part of our Northcote Campus' regenerative agriculture program. They will be raised as laying hens, and their eggs will be used in the dining hall and in our culinary arts co-curricular program, providing fresh and nutritious ingredients for students and staff.
The students who have been taking care of the chicks are excited to watch them grow and develop. They are already brainstorming ideas for names, and some of the suggestions are simply egg-cellent. Some of the possible names include Nugget, Chicken Little, Donald, and Ferdinand. We can't wait to see which names will be chosen for these adorable little creatures.
We believe in fostering a love for the environment and sustainable living practices in our students. The arrival of these chicks is just one example of our commitment to creating a more sustainable future, and we look forward to the positive impact they will have on our community.
