What an amazing year we have had on the farm! Our scholarship students have certainly lifted the profile of the school’s Agriculture program with multiple wins in many events and shows throughout the year. Including the coveted Grand Champion Steer in the carcass competition at the Royal Melbourne Show. Some contestants work at this prize for their entire lives and never end up winning it. Along with this and many other prizes for our animals and our handlers I think we can say it has been a pretty successful year for the College. This year will be hard to beat, but I am confident that with the things the students learnt this year we should be able to have an equally successful 2020.
I would like to thank all the participants, agriculture captains and supervising staff for all of their contributions and help during the year, it really has been a team effort and I look forward to working with new and old contributors next year!
The Farm has also had a pretty good year and as we learn the characteristics of the farm and the local growing seasons, we are well into plans for a more profitable performance next year as well as providing the grounding for a far more utilized farm and land area that will benefit a greater proportion of the school community and the agricultural programs that we enjoy and learn so much from.
Thankyou all for a great year!
