Agricultural education has been an integral part of the curriculum here at Salesian College for the best part of 90 years. Through Agriculture activities, students develop an understanding and application of planning, data gathering, problem solving, budgeting, importance of analysis and working in a team. We also teach intermediate skills in livestock production fundamentals including welfare, breeding programs and crop production.
Students have the opportunity to represent the College at various shows some including Holbrook Show, Australian Sheep and Wool Show Bendigo, Sunbury Show, Whittlesea Show, Ballarat Show and in Victoria’s largest and most iconic Agriculture event – Royal Melbourne Show.
Our Agricultural students also participate in the College Rupertswood Harvest, a community event attracting thousands to our College grounds. This
is a fantastic opportunity for these students to showcase their livestock to the community and share some more information about the day to
day happenings on the farm.
