- Venue: Holy Trinity Lutheran College
Today we farewell the Griffin family, who have been visiting Holy Trinity Lutheran College for the last two weeks from Kansas, USA.
Partnering with Longerenong College, BCG, the Victorian Agricultural Department and a range of Australian universities, Dr Terry Griffin travelled to Horsham to improve use of digital agriculture technologies and big data analytics within the Victorian grains industry. The aim is to transform the sector through better use of data to improve efficiencies as costs are reduced and yields are increased. Dr Griffin has also been in the classroom here at Holy Trinity, teaching students about geocaching. Geocaching is an outdoor recreational activity using GPS to ‘hide and seek’ containers (geocaches) at locations all over the world.
Dr Griffin’s three children Briley (Year 4), Austin (Year 6) and Ty (Year 9) have spent the past two weeks in classes to experience school life in Australia while they’re on Summer holiday from their school. The next stop before they return home is to Queensland to have a break and visit the many tourist attractions.
We thank them for spending their time here at HTLC and Dr Griffin’s generosity in sharing his knowledge of spatial science with our students. We wish them safe and enjoyable travels as they return home.
