Over 2 days, Kerry Staight & a film crew from ABC's Landline program visited Timboon P-12 School to document aspects of the TAP & the way our community is an integral component of this innovative curriculum model.
The film crew recorded the Year 7 BAA+RAM+You Maths students working with Peter & Jamie Finch to weigh ewes & lambs to calculate drench rates.
Our Year 9/10 Small Business students were recorded tending the lavender farm & sifting dried flowers to produce lavender bags.
The Prep students reenacted their Science studies of "On The Move" with Mick Harrison from the Corangamite Shire with his Caterpillar grader & Stewart Rundle with his Claas tractor.
The Year 10 students' genetics studies were documented in the classroom & the film crew then accompanied the class to Garry & Lee Hibberd's dairy farm where they witnessed Peter Younis & Rebecca Tyndall from The Vet Group harvest donor eggs in embryo transfer procedures.
Several students, staff & community members were also interviewed for their thoughts & experiences as part of the TAP.
It was an interesting & educational experience for staff & students to observe the degree of preparation that goes into producing a documentary program on the ABC. Thank you to the Landline crew for the opportunity to present the TAP story Australia wide!
