Description of charity’s activities and outcomes
PIEFA, in conjunction with Prime Zone and lighthouse schools, has been leading the Agriculture in Education initiative and has also has been at the forefront of the charge to have food and fibre included in the national curriculum. We are very pleased with the success of our efforts thus far and acknowledge those other organisations with whom we have worked to achieve this. However, it is doubtful that we would have achieved such a level of success had there not been a lead body such as PIEFA in existence.PIEFA has established a national network from education, industry and government that numbers over 3,000. This network will be the champions that assist us in delivering grass-roots activities and initiatives in the years to come. Through this network our monthly newsletter has become an important tool to disseminate information to those who need it. Data indicates that this newsletter is read from an audience comprising classroom teachers to federal ministers and in no less than 14 countries.
