The Royal Cheshire County Show would like to congratulate the award winners of the Bayer-LEAF Education Awards 2019.
Congratulations to APS Produce LTD which received the award for Innovative Learning, Brockhill School Farm which was awarded the Secondary School Partnership Award and Nonington Farm for receiving the Primary School Partnership Award.
The Bayer-LEAF Education Awards celebrate the very best of agricultural education initiatives on-farm, in the classroom, or online.
Together, Bayer and LEAF Education aim to help, inspire and mobilise champions of food and farming education, so that future generations grow up knowing more about farming and what it delivers as well as helping nurture a lifelong interest in the natural world and an awareness of their role in protecting it.
The Royal Cheshire County Show was pleased to have been nominated, alongside 2019 winners Nonington Farms, for a prestigious Primary School Partnership Award.
Since 2014, The Royal Cheshire County Show is proud to offer complimentary entry to the Show for Primary Education students at Edge Hill University to receive a full day of teacher training by LEAF Education and gain accreditation for their attendance.
The Show’s partnership also extends to offering wider support to the students with Show Stewards taking small groups of trainees around the Showground to highlight the many interesting and educational aspects of farming.
Through the students’ time spent at the Show, the trainees benefit from a real, honest and accurate understanding of farming and are able to use this knowledge to educate children about the specifics of agriculture, both inside and outside the classroom.
Rob Davenport, Show Director of The Royal Cheshire County Show, commented: “Congratulations to the Bayer-LEAF Education Award 2019 winners.
With our roots deeply embedded in agriculture, we are passionate about educating and inspiring the next generation of farmers and are proud to be recognised by Bayer-LEAF for making a valuable contribution to the education system, benefitting both teacher and student alike.”
