Linked to the wonderful book: How Did that Get in My Lunchbox: The Story of Food by Christine Butterworth our unit of work and incursion is linked to Stage 2 and 3 syllabus areas. Students explore food production systems aligned to the food products found daily in their lunchboxes. They develop an understand of agricultural supply chains and  production miles. Students undertake a series of food production challenges, learn about seed collection and growing food products from cuttings and establish their own micro garden in a lunchbox.

Junior Journalist Program

Junior Journalist Program (Ages 5-16 years)

We know across NSW thousands of young people  spend their daily lives growing up linked  to agriculture. This may be through life on farms  or maybe through links to family business including agri-tourism, supply chain and restaurants linked to local producers. They may also actively participate in agricultural shows. We want to provide these young people with a chance to share their experiences whilst providing learning opportunities for others. 

Our Junior Journalist Program provides such a platform. The program sees our junior journalists interview their family members about their agricultural businesses, why they chose a career in agriculture and the skills they require daily. Our young journalists also share an editorial about their life in agriculture and their knowledge about their aspect of the industry . Their interviews will form part of our My Life in Agriculture series and will be linked to our learning programs.

 

 

Additional programs are currently under development. We will add new programs to this page as they are launched.
