MACADAMIA CASTLE BECOMES A CLASSROOM FOR LOCAL STUDENTS

Northern Rivers’ students can get up close and personal with a range of cuddly creatures at the Macadamia Castle, with a term-long course launched today.

The program, which will run fortnightly on Monday and Tuesdays, is designed for kids who are homeschooled – educating them about a number of species.

“Anybody who has taught school kids knows they have a fairly short attention span… having them in a classroom and then go out and do a bit of prac and then come back and do a bit more education that’s great,” Tony Gilding said.

Expressions of interest are now open online for Term Four.
