Ensuring the future of agriculture
1 JANUARY 2003
About 70 high schools students from the Wagga Wagga district are due to experience first hand the careers and courses open to them in agriculture and primary industries. The EH Graham Centre for Agricultural Innovation – an alliance between Charles Sturt University (CSU) and Industry & Investment NSW – is hosting the Agriculture Enrichment Day on Friday 11 June at CSU in Wagga Wagga. The students will be divided into small groups and rotated through a range of sessions covering topics such as animal anatomy, insects, weeds and soil salinity. “This is a wonderful opportunity for the high school students to get a real taste of the variety of studies and careers available through the agricultural sector,” EH Graham Centre acting director Associate Professor Gavin Ash said. “In addition to the practical sessions, the students will be able to speak with staff from Charles Sturt University and Industry & Investment NSW.” The Agriculture Enrichment Day will be held from 8.45am to 1.30pm on Friday 11 June in and around Joyes Hall, Pugsley Place off Pine Gully Road, CSU in Wagga Wagga.
