This is definitely an incursion that every centre should do. Farmer Dave keeps the children engaged with bush stories and plenty of humour. We absolutely LOVE Farmer Dave and can't wait to have him visit our centre again.

Absolutely fantastic engagement, time management and presentation! Kept the activities and discussion at the right pace to keep interesting. Activities were interesting and engaging. Clear and engaging presentation. His sidekick showed promise and accepted suggestions for his tasks. We would recommend Dave to other schools.

Farmer Dave as come to COOSC several times and has delivered an informative, incursion every time. This last program being the best so far. It was engaging and fun and all the children were actively involved from start to finish. From an educators, we found it met the outcomes of the current NQF and we will definitely have him back for future programs. AWESOME.

Farmer Dave kept the children engaged with humour and stories from the bush. It was great to hear the story Tiddilick the frog while making damper and then a group of the children went outside to reinact the traditional story. Within the program, I felt all areas from MTOP framework was included.
