Why choose the From Paddock to Plate (FP2P) Schools Program?

For the first time in Australia, FP2P brings farming experiences and food education into the classroom using unique, accessible, cost-effective and hassle-free “virtual excursions”, projects, experiments and presentations.

With just one online login, all teachers and students and your school can access over 300 FP2P resources covering the Australian Curriculum requirements of Year 7 – Year 10 students in up to nine subjects.

If you’re a Science teacher, an English teacher, a Geography teacher… just take out a section of your current curriculum and insert the relevant FP2P curriculum. You’ll be meeting the learning requirements of that subject and year level while also teaching your students about food, health, nutrition, the environment, sustainability and careers.
