Over 5,300 NSW students joined the Minister for Education and Early Learning Sarah Mitchell at the 2022 Royal Easter Show.
“The Show is such a wonderful display of the country coming to the city. It’s an amazing opportunity for students to have exposure to agriculture and learn more about where food and fibre come from,” Ms Mitchell said.
“The show is an incredible opportunity for our regional and metro students to meet and experience what living and learning in regional NSW is all about.”
Minister for Agriculture and Western NSW Dugald Saunders said it’s important to bring the country to the city for kids to get a taste of the work our hard-working farmers do.
“2022 marks the 200th year of the Royal Agricultural Society, with some amazing exhibits on display for children to get a thorough understanding of the important role primary industries play in their everyday lives,” Mr Saunders said.
“After a tough few years in the Agriculture industry, with floods, fires and drought impacting our rural communities, this year we are shining a light on the remarkable recovery we’ve made as a state.”
On the 19th April, the final day of the show, children aged three and above will have their ticket priced halved, and those under the age of three can get in for free.
“I encourage families to come to the Easter Show this year and celebrate the 200th Year and immerse your children in some of the great activities available,” Ms Mitchell said.
