TAS Country : May 24th 2012
14 Tasmanian Country Friday, May 25, 2012 News CREAM OF THE CROP: Cheese maker Russell Smith with local teachers learning about cheese. A lesson in dairy goodness KAROLIN MacGREGOR TEACHERS from across Tasmania's north got their hands dirty this week as part of a new program designed to promote the dairy industry in schools. The Cows Create Ca- reers -- Camembert in the Classroom project has been held for the first time in Tasmania this year. This week, 16 teachers from eight participating schools spent two days learning how to make cheese with one of the country's experts. Schools involved in the project are Circular Head Christian School, Penguin High School, Wynyard High School, Exeter High School, Lilydale District High School, Devonport High School, Cressy Dis- trict High School and Deloraine High School. Cheese expert Russell Smith ran the two-day workshop -- and as the deputy chief judge at the Australian Grand Dairy awards, he knows a thing or two about what makes good cheese. Mr Smith said that in his experience, students who got involved with the program quickly began to treat their cheeses like pets, building a close re- lationship with them and the gentle fermenting milk as it matures into velvety goodness. The aim of the project is to promote the Australian dairy industry to secon- dary school students and get them to have a closer look at the products the dairy industry produces. It is also hoped that students participating in the program will get a better understanding of career pathways in the dairy industry. Local dairy farmers and people involved in the manufacturing side of the industry are also invited to get involved to share their knowledge and enthusi- asm. The project involves teams of students making camembert cheese in the classrooms. The students are also required to design a multi- media advertising cam- paign that explains why dairy foods are important part of a balanced diet. The cheeses and the advertisements will be judged at a Big Day Out presentation event in August. Mr Smith, along with other accredited judges, will present an award to the students who have made the winning cheese in the region. A judging panel consist- ing of local dairy farmers and manufacturing rep- resentatives will also present an award to the winning multimedia advertisement. The school that produces the winning cheese will receive $500. The school with the best multimedia advertisement will win $250.
