Teach The Teacher comes to Goondiwindi

Friday, 20th December 2013 // Cotton Matters // Comments (0)

The Macintyre Valley Cotton Growers Association will host an industry bus tour for teachers and their families to kick off what is sure to mark another year of successful collaboration between the Association and the local schools.

An earlier Teach the Teacher tour sponsored by the Central Highlands Cotton Growers & Irrigators Association

Buses will leave the schools at 3.30pm Friday the 24th of January and return to town after a barbecue and drinks under the stars.
The tour is an excellent opportunity for teachers to learn about the cotton industry which supports the Goondiwindi community, and also network with fellow teachers.
Highlights of the event will include a tour of a local gin and cotton farm, and discussions with local growers and industry representatives who will help make the connections between issues that concern the local industry and the curriculum in their classrooms.
