Update on an exciting new program

pearl website image

Making rainbows from the storm.... whilst we are missing students on the campus engaging with our programs, we are using our time to expedite some projects with our industry partners.

One very exciting project we are currently finalising is our partnered learning programs with Broken Bay Pearls and Pearls of Australia.

The project consists of  interactive programs and excursion/fieldwork opportunities that we hope to be able to launch Semester 2.

Our programs are transdisciplinary and will suit Stages 4-6 in TAS, Aquaculture, Sciences, Agriculture and Geography. Here is a sneak peak of our website currently under development to support our programs.

 

 

Junior Journalist_ My Life in Agriculture 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.

 

If you would like to access our My Life in Agriculture resources or nominate a future Junior Journalist please access further information on our Junior Journalist page.
