The Kiara College Agricultural 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. 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.
Changes to the Program in 2019
Following the loss of program funding in 2019, Kiara College made the decision to continue run the Agricultural Awareness Program at a smaller scale that fits within Kiara College’s existing resources. As a priority the program is currently targeting bookings from government primary schools local to Kiara College but other non-local primary schools are encouraged to enquire about excursion availability.
