Southern Riverina news - - News -

JER­ILDERIE Pub­lic School re­cently wel­comed univer­sity stu­dents Laura An­der­son and Kristie Hud­son (pic­tured above), who were keen to learn about teach­ing at a coun­try school.

The stu­dent teach­ers came to the school through the Be­yond the Line teacher re­cruit­ment pro­gram.

Ms An­der­son and Ms Hud­son, who are in their fi­nal year of study for their teach­ing de­gree at the Univer­sity of New Eng­land, spent three days at Jer­ilderie PS to have a small taste of the ben­e­fits of teach­ing in a coun­try school.

The Be­yond the Line pro­gram was de­vel­oped by the Depart­ment of Ed­u­ca­tion sev­eral years ago to help at­tract be­gin­ning teach­ers to teach in coun­try ar­eas away from Syd­ney, New­cas­tle and Wol­lon­gong.
