TAFE open day

FREE education is a concept that seems to have died out in the modern world, but TAFE NSW's Trenayr campus is looking to change that for one lucky person at its open day next Tuesday.

A free diploma course offered by the campus will be up for grabs to the winner of a guessing competition staged during the event.

Although the prize can't be redeemed for money, the winner will be able to pass it on to a friend or relative if they so choose.

The Trenayr campus will throw open its doors to all those wishing to learn more about the equine, aquaculture and environmental courses run out of the Clarence Valley.

Traditionally, the TAFE's open day has been held in August to coincide with Open Day Week but, according to campus manager Kayleen Stephenson, had often been marred by atrocious weather.

This year she has tempted fate by scheduling the day around Grafton's annual Jacaranda Festival celebrations.

The campus will feature a range of displays and presentations about the variety of subjects taught through its courses.

Organisations like the Rural Fire Service, Department of Primary Industries, State Forests NSW, Clarence Valley Council and the State Emergency Service will also have a presence on the day with their own displays and information stalls.

A free shuttle bus will run from the Grafton and Trenayr campuses between 10am and 2pm on the day.

For more information contact the campus on 66414400.
