Ag Inspirations Tour

Ag Inspirations Tour
​Clifton students visited agricultural industry facilities during the Ag Inspirations Tour to Warwick.
Every year, students from Clifton State High School are invited to attend the Ag Inspirations tour. The tour is organised by Ag Force in conjunction with local industry and the Department of Employment, Small Business and Training, and has been developed to provide meaningful opportunities for school students and local employers to connect. The program assists students in making informed decisions when considering their career options in the agricultural industry. This year, four students from our school community joined students from other schools in our district on a tour of some of the facilities in and around Warwick.
Over three days, beginning Monday 22nd July, Kiara Bressington, Olivia Walker, Jasmine Keleher and Dawson Doepel, who are all participants in the CSHS Certificate III in Rural Operations course, joined students from Warwick State High School, Scots PGC College, Assumption College and Stanthorpe State High School to visit a variety of facilities. These facilities included, amongst others; the Department of Agriculture and Fisheries research station in Warwick, Maydan Feedlot, Riverina Stock Feeds, John Dee Warwick abattoir and Wickham Farms.    
During the three day program, students took the opportunity to ask questions about the various roles within each operation and were able to identify future career possibilities. All the students came away with a greater understanding of the broad range of opportunities available within the various industries. This experience should be very valuable in helping them to make informed decisions in relation to their own individual career journeys.
