Mid Coast Connect is a not-for-profit organisation striving to assist young people with their 
transition from school into further education, training or employment.
This project is supported by  Dairy Australia and has been run by  Mid Coast Connect for the past 10 years. This year, eight high schools across the region will be competing for a range of prizes; including $500 cash for their school. Winners will be announced at a fun and interactive presentation day to be held at Wauchope on 16 October 2017.
Camden Haven High School
Camden Haven High School has a number of classes involved in the Cows Create Careers program this year.

When asked why the school participates in the Cows Create Careers project each year, the Camden Haven High School teacher said 'It's truly a phenomenal program that introduces students to the Dairy Industry and gets them thinking about a range of careers and aspects of the Industry. The kids have a lot of fun and put in a fair bit of effort which is fantastic'.
Wauchope High School
Hastings Secondary College - Westport Campus
Calves were used in our Years 7 and 8 'Living green' class as well as in Year 9 Agriculture technology class. Students were on a roster for feeding before and after school every weekday as well as conducting routine husbandry practices and weighing the calves regularly in class time. The c alves have been named Cookies and Cream.
Taree Christian College
Taree Christian College industry advocate Steven Brown recently visited the school and talk to the students and demonstrated the techniques involved in artificially inseminating a cow. Students even got to have a go! Students are now working on projects and looking after two poddy calves on loan for the rest of the term.
