Eyre Peninsula department of education and child development education director Rowena Fox said chief executives of all government departments made the trip and visited schools in Ceduna, Cleve, Ungarra and Port Lincoln.
“The purpose of the visit was to gain an appreciation of issues related to Eyre Peninsula, particularly in relation to child education and development,” Mrs Fox said.
The group made the trip to Ceduna Tuesday afternoon to assess the school’s flexible learning option centre and youth hub, before the senior management council met with local industry leaders for a cocktail night at the Port Lincoln Hotel that evening.
Ungarra Primary School was visited on Wednesday morning where the group inspected the school’s Stephanie Alexander garden kitchen before returning to Port Lincoln to meet with staff and students from the Port Lincoln High School.
“It was a great opportunity for the group to get a first hand look at the high school’s agriculture centre and the diverse options students have to them,” Mrs Fox said.
