What's happening now...

The Wagga Maths in Trades Implementation Workshop — what a day!

The AEF was very excited when 37 maths teachers from 34 schools turned up at the Wagga Maths in Trades Implementation Workshop recently. There was a serious amount of talking, making of plans, asking of questions and not a little to-ing and fro-ing. We count it a huge success. Thank you everyone for coming along. We hope all goes well for you when you introduce MITP to your students next year. A particular thank you to Nathan Cooper from the RIEP who was a big help to us.

Join us in the paddock

Join us in the paddock for the FIRST EVER wool industry school-based showcase day at the TAFE campus, Narromine Road, Dubbo on 19 September (10am-2pm). There will be workshops covering drafting sheep, shearing, wool classing and sheep selection. Find out the answers to all your pressing questions about the wool industry at the Q&A. Lunch will give everyone an opportunity to mill round and meet potential employers and apprentices; shepherded by a whole lot of people determined to bring you together. Wool-gathering is definitely not on the agenda. This is a FREE event, but you MUST register, you can’t just show up.
