Final Cut Off Date:  Friday  9th November 2018

For this price you will receive 4 nights’ accommodation at The Plainsman Motel, (if you choose the accommodation price) some meals, tours by bus of the Central West and what it has to offer, conference shirt, displays, presentations by sponsors, delegate gift bag, engaging and informative workshops, entertaining speeches, and a formal dinner at “Ëat your Greens” at Eugowra.

We are currently seeking accredited hours of QTC Registered Professional Development.

As you are aware the Central West is currently experiencing a drought. Despite this our committee has been working hard to showcase our area to you and to help further your knowledge to improve your teaching and learning in the classroom.

We hope that you can join us in your January school holidays to see what the Central West has to offer as well as catch up and share valuable knowledge with other NSW Agricultural Teachers.

We look forward to seeing you all. Flat Out Farming Committee.
