"THIS is the part of my job I love the most," said local MP Justine Elliot as she officially opened the $1.5 million Agricultural Trade Training centre at Murwillumbah High School.

"It's very exciting and gives me great pleasure to see the students' perceptions come to fruition."

The Federal Labor Government funded project is part of the Trade Training Centres in Schools Program.

Mrs Elliot said the centre was already having a "hugely positive impact" on the school, its students and the broader community.

"Murwillumbah is a very strong community and I see the centre as a real community victory," she said.

Wollumbin High School will also benefit from the centre that will provide industry relevant training in various industries, including qualifications in agriculture, aquaculture and horticulture.

The program is one of a number of initiatives designed to improve the quality of schooling nationwide and help address skill shortages in traditional trades and emerging industries according to Mrs Elliot.

"It has been fantastic to see local input from principals, parents and tradespeople in delivering this important community project," she said.
