Calling for School and Primary Industry Themed Partnerships
PIEF is calling for schools with an existing primary industries partnership to participate in a ground breaking forum to enhance, expand and sustain school and agribusiness partnerships in schools.
Do you have an established partnership based around Food and Fibre at your school?
The project also enjoys the support of the Department of Education, Employment and Workplace Relations (DEEWR) and the National Australia Bank (NAB).
PIEF is calling for schools with established and successful partnerships to complete a short Expression of Interest to attend the Forum. The project will select one school from each state and territory and two key people from each partnership (to be determined by the school) will fly to Canberra to share their successes and challenges at a two-day forum. The project will cover all travel costs of attendees and teacher release, if applicable.
