STUDENTS and teachers from Coláiste an Atha, Kilmuckridge, were among those who recently paid a visit to the Teagasc Grange Research and Innovation Centre in Dunsany, Co. Meath, for a day of hands-on learning.
The visit came in the same week as the National Council for Curriculum and Assessment announced that the Agricultural Science syllabus will be updated after 40 years.
The visit was part of Agri Aware's Farm Walk and Talk initiative that was held across the country in an effort to educate students about modern agricultural practices. Agri Aware organised the event in association with Teagasc, the Irish Agricultural Science Teachers' Association, members of Meat Industry Ireland, the Irish dairy industry and other patrons.
