Shearing School Continues to Inspire

Another successful Wool Works Shearing and Woolhandling School was held in Glen Innes this month with 16 high school students from Macintyre Highschool in Inverell, as well as Glen Innes High attending the three day workshop. The program provides high school students with an opportunity to experience the varied roles in the wool industry and gain some hands-on skills and is popular with students and teachers alike. Since the original trial in 2016, the innovative concept developed by RDANI has grown from strength to strength with ever increasing interest from schools around the region.

“The way that the students engage with the experience and are so keen to learn is brilliant to see. Not only are we encouraging our students to have an interest in a career in the agriculture sector, but we are also providing them with unique skills that they can utilise in the future.” said Executive Director, Nathan Axelsson

More Shearing Schools are planned for the next year and interested high school teachers or students from year 9 to 11 can contact our office on 67710700 or rdani@rdani.org.au.
