Agriculture activities

Norwell District Secondary School held an Ag Careers Competition on March 27 to promote careers in agriculture and help students develop skills needed in the agri-business sector. The event is the latest in a series of special events designed to engage students in agricultural education and develop Norwell’s new LEAF (Local Environmental Agriculture and Food) program. Students participated in stations about careers in agriculture and practiced employment skills such as problem solving, communication and teamwork. Students were evaluated and received “pay checks” based on how well the group worked together. Students were able to see what careers exist in the agriculture field by listening to experts and completing hands-on experiments. The sessions included finance, sales, environmental initiatives, food systems, plant biology and animal science. “Our students thoroughly enjoyed the atmosphere and learning style. Thank you to Mr. Frayne and AgScape for putting on this excellent learning session,” organizers state. From left: students  Ellysse Charlebois, Jacy Diamond and Kari Kabbes.   Submitted photo
