Elaine P Snowden

The Elaine P. Snowden Astronomy School is a five-day event for Year 13 students interested in studying Astronomy or Physics at university. This will run in the first term holidays. 20 places available.

In 2020, the programme will run from 19-24 April, with a mix of seminars and practical work. Students will travel to UC’s Mt John Observatory at Tekapo and explore our cosmic neighbourhood with modern astronomical instruments. Back on the University of Canterbury’s Ilam campus, they’ll learn about the universe past, present and future, the life cycles of stars, planet exploration, extraterrestrial life and more. A highlight of the camp is meeting fellow students with the same astronomical interests and making new friends.

Scholarships for Farming and Horticulture

Primary ITO is responding to the urgent need for skilled workers in agriculture and horticulture by launching a scholarship programme for apprentice fees.

Applications for the scholarships are open for October and November and will cover fees for the whole duration of the apprenticeship programmes, which generally take 2-3 years.

“Our industries are facing unprecedented challenges right now and we believe scholarships for apprentices will help business gain the skills they need,” says Primary ITO’s incoming chief executive Nigel Philpott.

“Offering scholarships for apprenticeships is one way of encouraging people to build a career in the primary industries, particularly as we know there is huge demand for people across all industries.

“We also recognise that it takes effort to study and learn. Training is valuable and Primary ITO believes that taking care of the fees will make apprenticeships very attractive.”

The scholarships are available for apprentices in dairy farming, sheep and beef, and horticulture production. Mr Philpott says an apprenticeship sets people on a pathway to a successful career, with support, advice and goal-setting coming from both a Primary ITO training advisor and the apprentice’s employer.

“With issues like trade, biosecurity, the environment, and competition all putting pressure on our industries, we believe the time is right to invest in people.

“New Zealanders depend on the primary sector, our largest export sector. It is growing and needs more skilled workers and employers.

“The future of farming and horticulture will be driven by innovation – not just scale. Our job is to train people to accelerate the pace of innovation, improve farming and horticulture practices, and deliver more profitable growth.”
