We have some new friends at Forestville Montessori School – guinea pigs!   There’s a story behind the guinea pigs that all started before lockdowns, yes, two years ago, and it just shows the impact of the pandemic on our day to day operations.

In many ways, the guinea pigs’ arrival, signals new beginnings and points the way forward for many more ‘Going Outs’ and projects led by the children’s interests.

Enjoy the video telling the story through the eyes of the children involved in the project.

Welcome to FMS Strawberry Chocolate Banjo, Chippy Greedy Stardust, Midnight Fantastic and Rockstar De Breen!

This is Montessori in Action.
