Last weekend, on Sunday 28 October, we hosted our annual Rupertswood Harvest on the mansion lawns.
The Harvest is a fantastic opportunity for our agriculture students and staff to showcase their livestock to the community and share some more information about the day to day happenings on the farm. This year, we were once again so pleased to have a fantastic level of community engagement, with attendance numbers in the thousands! It was a fantastic day with nice weather, great entertainment, and interesting displays including sheep shearing, whip cracking, and cattle demonstrations.
Thank you to all the students, staff, and community members (especially St Anne's and Our Lady of Mount Carmel Primary Schools, and Rupertswood Cricket Club) who took part in the day by hosting stalls, representing the College, performing, or volunteering. Jason Ritchie, our Farm Manager, shares how impressed he was with both the students and the animals on the weekend in his update later in this newsletter.
As always, we welcome any feedback in an effort to make sure we are always improving. If you attended our Rupertswood Harvest this year, we would be grateful if you completed our short feedback survey; click here to begin.
We look forward to another great Rupertswood Harvest next year; if you would like to be involved next year, please contact Kerri Pozaic (firstname.lastname@example.org).
