Well done Julie

Mansfield Courier - - OPINIONS/PEOPLE - Bill Sykes, (MLA, Be­nalla), Par­lia­men­tary Sec­re­tary for Pri­mary In­dus­tries

I WRITE to con­grat­u­late Mans­field teacher Julie Al­dous on be­ing se­lected as a fi­nal­ist for the Vic­to­rian Coali­tion Govern­ment’s 2014 Ru­ral Women’s Award.

Julie’s pas­sion for im­ple­ment­ing the award win­ning, in­no­va­tive food and fi­bre agribusi­ness course at Mans­field Se­condary Col­lege has seen her be awarded a Vic­to­rian Ed­u­ca­tion Ex­cel­lence Award and a NAB Im­pact Award.

Over the past two years Julie has sup­ported the devel­op­ment of food and fi­bre pro­grams in schools across Aus­tralia and the pro­gram has be­come a model used by many schools through­out the coun­try.

Un­der the guid­ance of Julie, the Mans­field agribusi­ness pro­gram has fos­tered strong lo­cal net­works be­tween Mans­field Se­condary Col­lege, stu­dents, farm­ers and agribusi­nesses.

Agribusi­ness re­mains an im­por­tant part of Mans­field’s econ­omy and way of life and Julie has made an out­stand­ing con­tri­bu­tion to this sec­tor.

The Vic­to­rian win­ner will be an­nounced at Par­lia­ment House on March 13 and Julie would be a de­serv­ing re­cip­i­ent.
