More than 120 pupils from schools throughout South Otago are now clued up about what happens with wool once it leaves the farm gate.

The Woolshed has been at South Otago High School for the past two weeks.

Although it is called The Woolshed, it is actually a movable container which is part of the Wool in Schools programme funded by Campaign for Wool.

It takes pupils through a hands-on learning experience all about wool and shows how the fibre can be used for more than just jerseys and socks.

South Otago High School technology teacher Christine Elder said it had been a fantastic opportunity.
