Inspiration for a career in agriculture
30 JUNE 2009
Identifying animals destined for the abattoir and cloning smelly plants are just some of the activities on offer to high school students in the Riverina at the Agricultural Enrichment Day on Monday 6 July at Charles Sturt University (CSU) at Wagga Wagga. Hosted by the EH Graham Centre for Agricultural Innovation, an alliance between CSU and the NSW Department of Primary Industries (DPI), the event will give the students access to some of the leading agricultural and veterinary scientists in NSW. “The event has been a success in previous years and I hope the day will inspire students to consider a career in one of the many jobs agriculture can offer,” said Director of the EH Graham Centre, Professor Deirdre Lemerle. Year 10 and 11 students will attend from Barham Central School, Billabong Central School, Riverina Anglican College, Kooringal High School, Griffith High School, Finley High School, Murrumburrah High School, St Paul’s at Walla Walla and Wagga Wagga High School.
