It is the summer term, and the nation is in lockdown. CAFRE has had to close its gates for the first time since World War Two. College accommodation has been re-purposed for NHS staff and many of the students are classed as essential workers. 20-year-old Loughry food student Jack has a part-time job as a healthcare assistant. He is back home living with his family in Ballymoney and spends term three juggling online college work with frontline shifts on the Covid-19 wards at Antrim and Causeway Hospitals. Spring is normally boom time for garden centres, but just as everything is flowering at the Greenmount campus, horticulture student Niall Greene’s family nursery business in Armagh has had to close. It is now down to Niall and his father to keep the stock alive. College days have come to an abrupt end for final year agricultural students Leanne Green and Katie Acheson. They are classed as essential workers milking in a dairy farm in Dromore, Co Down. Equine student Luke Norton from Longford took the decision to stay on at his student house on his own in Enniskillen. He has a part-time job in a butchery, ensuring food gets to those most vulnerable in the community. He keeps on top of college work and is in regular contact with the lecturers by video link. Final-year agricultural student Jack Nevin hoped to graduate in June, but his college days have been cut short. He finds himself back working on the family dairy farm outside Portrush. The rural community also come together with Jack helping out on a sheep farm in Kells.
