THOSE living on the land are no strangers to raging bushfires and gut-wrenching droughts, but it's these climatic conditions which cause plenty of stress for parents.
With this in mind, the NSW government has notified the state's three agricultural boarding schools, which includes Yanco Agricultural High School, that it will be covering the three per cent increase in boarding fees for 2020.
The school has also been given $100,000 which will be used to support parents with the ongoing drought.
The YAHS P&C has decided to split this money 50/50, meaning $50,000 will be split up and divided over all student accounts and the other half will be used to help families in need.
Broken down, this means $200 will be removed from every child's transport bill for term one.
The other $50,000 will be divided up to families in need by application.
YAHS principal Gary Hunt said boarding fees typically increased each year, but this year the school requested that number be limited to the minimum three per cent.
"This means parents will be paying the same fees they paid last year, so there has essentially been no increase because the government is covering that component," he said.
"It does definitely help relieve some of the stress for parents.
"The extra $100,000 was given to us at the end of last year and how we have decided to split that up appears to have been greatly appreciated.
"It's a little less to worry about.
"The kids that come here, 99 per cent of them enjoy their time a great deal. Parents want to give their children a good education."
Every year, YAHS does already allocate some money to help families in financial need and this year it will be putting aside a greater sum for that purpose.
