It's not often you see an alpaca, next to a tram conductor, opposite a flooded fences workshop, around the corner from a student designed robotic dairy game, near a bee hive, in the proximity of a farm safety ap development workshop or juxtaposed with a Zombie disease out break simulation.
That doesn’t even include the sunflowers, tractor & hay rake, recycling challenge, dairy taste test, “What’s for breakfast” encounter, pulse mandalas or the Preloved, Reloved market. The annual TAP's On! curriculum expo had it all, & even more.
Five hundred students from Timboon P-12 School, Simpson Primary School & Nullawarre Primary School participated in the series of peer lead workshops & displays held at Timboon on Thursday in a celebration of the exciting agriculture based curriculum.
The Red Carpet screening of the Heywire TRACTA films showcasing 5 local agribusiness people and their respective career paths was a feature. A new addition this year was the inclusion of Pop Up markets featuring local foodies as way of showcasing the magnificent produce & businesses in our region including Simpson Snails, Apostle Whey Cheese, Timboon Peanut Butter, Timboon Fine Ice Cream, The Wholesome Pantry, Timboon Berry World, Lavender on TAP.
We are very grateful to the Gall Family Foundation for their support of TAP's On! 2016.
