Words From The Director
5 October 2020

The Banyule Nillumbik Tech School will continue to support students from our 20 partner schools with remote learning during the first weeks of Term 4. We are eagerly awaiting health advice for a return to face to face delivery, and will provide an update to schools on what delivery onsite involves at that point.

In preparation for Term 4, we’ve been communicating with schools eager to book students into virtual programs, providing something different to look forward to and break up the school week. Limited places are still available and a list of programs can be found by clicking here.

Soon schools will receive an invitation to attend our virtual 2021 program launch scheduled for November. The year 2021 will showcase our best program suite to date, with strong industry partnerships with the likes of CSIRO, CSL Behring, North East Link Project, Farmwall, Melbourne Innovation Centre, Melbourne Institute for Frontier Materials and much more.

We look forward to working with our schools, community and industry partners this Term.

Tech School Highlight

Urban Farming at Home

We have partnered with Farmwall to develop our next Design Challenge around growing food from your home or school. Right now, Farmwall is looking for schools to take part in their Urban Farming Education program. This unique program is an all in one growing kit, supported by a range of educational video tutorials and guides, kid friendly activities, one on one support, online learning portal and much more. You will receive one aquaponic and hydroponic Urban Farming Kit for your school including all the elements necessary for a successful luscious indoor garden.

This is a great opportunity and we would love our schools to take up this great offer. The Banyule Nillumbik and Whittlesea Tech Schools participated last Term. The next cohort is commencing soon.

“A unique program, grow kit and vibrant online community garden, that allows you or your school to grow fresh produce in a simple, effective and supported way. Make growing second nature. Create a complete, balanced ecosystem. Enrich your life and that of your students.”
