Three major rural players have vowed to promote and deliver teacher professional development about food and fibre. 

The NSW Department of Primary Industries (DPI) and Royal Agricultural Society of NSW and Primary Industries Education Foundation Australia have signed a memorandum of understanding about the important education.  

NSW DPI Deputy Director General Agriculture, Michael Bullen said it is important to encourage and support our teachers to improve learning for the younger generation on key areas of our primary industries.

“I am very pleased to see this partnership between industry, government and educators to increase the learning focus for primary school teachers and students about food and fibre production,” Mr Bullen said.

“This collaboration is a great blend as the Royal Agricultural Society of NSW is committed to supporting agricultural development and the Primary Industries Education Foundation Australia is the leader in food and fibre education.”
