On Thursday, November 22nd, TAP's On!, will showcase how Timboon P-12 staff and students are integrating agriculture into the curriculum to support learning outcomes across all areas. Just under five hundred students from Timboon P-12 School and Nullawarre and District Primary School will be rotating through peer-led activities based on the work undertaken in the classroom. From 10.00am to 1.00pm, students will be rotating through a series of workshops, almost like ‘speed dating’ on agriculture! TAP's On! shows how teaching staff integrate agriculture and community engagement into their curriculum through different interactive classroom and off-campus activities.
George the Farmer will be a highlight with a showcase for juniors from 10.00am – 11.00am followed by workshop sessions on entrepreneurism and web development with George and creators, Simone Kain and Ben Hood.
Experts or mentors are invited to assist the presenting students from Years five to ten in their peer-led workshops for our expo.
