Students show off skills at the Learning Centre

Over 200 students from 11 government schools across the state will be showing and sharing their knowledge in agriculture, horticulture and STEM learning at the Royal Adelaide Show, which starts tomorrow.

The Learning Centre is an interactive space for children, their families and the general public to participate in a number of fun and educational activities and demonstrations run by a mix of specialised teachers and their students.

Quotes attributable to Executive Director Strategic Policy and External Relations, Karen Weston

There’s always something new and exciting in the Learning Centre and I encourage everyone to check out the great work our students and teachers are doing.

It’s great to see the number of regional and metro schools involved in the Learning Centre has grown and it is a wonderful experience seeing children, young people and their families engage with the school teams.

There are also a number of other schools presenting work in the Royal Show, so get along and support their contributions.

Our ongoing participation in the Royal Adelaide Show supports growth in learning for all students as we strive towards building a world class education system.
