What’s Right with Schools: Education with animals at Lyman Hall High School

News

It’s a pretty awesome place for a lot of reasons.

Far beyond snakes, a program at Lyman Hall High School covers all areas of food fiber and natural resources.

“Agricultural mechanics, aquaculture, food science, large animal science, plant science, small animal with a vet focus, small animal with pet industry focus and also wildlife biology,” explained Rebecca Rose, Director of the Regional Agriculture Education Program at Lyman Hall.

Many of the students look towards a career working in agriculture or with animals.

“Hopefully, I’ll get to work with exotic animals and help them,” said senior Brinna Connonoly.

Every year, the program pulls out the stops and puts on the AGG Fair, opening to the community with educational exhibits.

Elementary school kids are some of the fair’s biggest fans, but it offers opportunities to high school students too.

“The students really learn all those life skills today, and through the three days of our fair,” Rose said. “Not just the content area that they are covering.”

In all, this is a great way to end four years of hard work in some of Connecticut’s furriest, cuddliest and most fascinating classrooms.
