Agriculture teachers discuss FP2P Schools Program

I am extremely grateful to teachers in NSW for providing me with constructive feedback on the From Paddock to Plate (FP2P) Schools Program at the 2015 NSW Association of Agriculture Teachers Conference held in Ballina this week.

I won’t say it wasn’t daunting to stand up in front of more than 50 experienced educators and explain to them the reasons why they should be implementing the Schools Program into their curriculums.

Apart from educating students about the origin of food, encouraging healthy eating and reducing food waste and food miles, the FP2P Schools Program also provides students with social and mental health benefits, stimulates creative thinking in a variety of subjects, inspires careers in Agriculture and supports Australian farmers.

The Schools Program is revolutionising the way teachers educate their students about where foods come from as it eliminates the misconception that food education is only for Food Technology and Agriculture classes;

The feedback was positive, productive and supportive and will be added to the teaching materials over the coming weeks in time for the start of the 2015 school year.
