Rural School “Canal del Beagle” endeavours and promotes activities that aim for the students to obtain customs and values through respect for others and cooperating in tasks that will improve quality of life of the community. In order to obtain this goal, in 2010 the school started a chicken farm programme with laying hens, with the participation of the pupils, their families and the rural community. The egg production allows selling them and provide the community with a vital consumer product.
