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.
Some students have also had the opportunity to undertake agricultural demonstrations at the Rupertswood Harvest and participate at the Cattle Handlers Camp.
