CHILDREN at the Kath Dickson Kindergarten Dalby South received a special visit this week from sheep Dolly, Rosie and Lamby on a day dedicated to learning about farmers and the drought.

The children dressed up for the occasion donningin their best farmer clothes and raised money for Drought Angels.

Kindergarten director Megann Rummell said being in a rural community, it was important to give backto the farmers who were doing it tough.

"At the moment our farmers are in dire straits and we know how important they are so we are just doing what we can to help," Megann said.

 "It also gives the kids great hands-on experience.

"It's great to see them so engaged and learning in the moment … there's nothing better than having the natural world brought to them."

While dressing up and playing with the lambs was great fun, the children also had a lesson on the importance of farmers and what they do for our community.
