Brighton Council General Manager James Dryburgh with JRLF students

Students at the Jordan River Learning Federation Senior School now have more opportunities thanks to a school farm. Brighton Mayor Leigh Gray and Brighton Council General Manager James Dryburgh were there as Minister of Education Roger Jaensch officially opened the facility in late August.

The Tasmanian Govern­ment allocated $4.3 million to invest in more opportu­nities for local school stu­dents who want to develop their skills in butchery and agriculture.

The JRLF School Farm stu­dents can now get hands-on experience in a demonstra­tion kitchen, butchery area, science lab and learning space, with room to learn about stock fencing and irrigation systems. The gov­ernment has also invested in new machinery and the site has had a full upgrade.

It follows the successful model of the Sheffield High School Farm and is in keeping with the Tasma­nian Agricultural Education Framework.

This new high-tech facility enables students to hone skills in butchery and agri­culture, making it easier for them to enter these well-es­tablished industries.
