Anyone who grew up in the country will remember the excitement of the annual ‘Show’ coming to town. My sister and I always had new dresses made for the occasion OK!and so looked forward to the rides, sample bags and the amazing exhibits followed by fireworks on the Saturday night.
Agricultural Show Societies have been an important meeting place of town and country for well over a century here in Australia and now, more than ever, that role is vital to ensuring urban students understand the source of so many of their products and understand the role farmers play in looking after the country.
A survey has been developed that aims to increase understanding of how shows are currently used by schools, and what impact they have on their students.
The surveyonly takes 5 mins to complete and they would love to have your school students views.
