The Kiara College Agriculture Awareness Program has been running for a number of years with funding from the Agriculture Education section of the Department of Education. The program provides unique learning opportunities within the metropolitan area that engages students (pre-primary to year 6) in agriculture through participation in programs involving an excursion/s to the Kiara farm.
Agriculture teachers from Kiara College are available to work with primary school teachers to develop programs, provide pre-visit support to prepare students for their farm excursion and post visit support to consolidate learning. Program activities are linked to farm operations and focus on engaging and generating student interest in agriculture and are mapped back to the Australian curriculum.
Excursions can be booked during the 2018 school terms.
Monday:8:30 am – 12:30 pm
Tuesday: 8:30 am – 11:30 am
