Burra In The Community
Burra Foods prides itself on having a strong community involvement, working with local schools, clubs and farmers. We sponsor a range of different events within the community.
Burra Foods has developed a strong partnership with Korumburra Secondary College working with the teachers and students to promote the dairy industry, focusing heavily on the field of science and how it relates Burra Foods.
The partnership between Burra Foods and Korumburra Secondary College was selected as a case study in the Strengthening School Industry Engagement Program funded by the Department of Education and Training (DET). The aim of the program was to highlight best practice in promoting Vocational Education and Training (VET) pathways through partnerships with industry. Burra Foods and Korumburra Secondary College have a longstanding partnership characterised by regular meetings and an annual plan of activities that can be adjusted to the demands of both the industry and the school. There is a high level of mutual trust and commitment to supporting career pathways for young people in the Korumburra community including both VET and university pathways.
