Senior agricultural science

​Agricultural science which is an OP subject provides students with the opportunity to manage a number of agricultural related projects.

Over the period of year 11 and 12 the level of student autonomy is increased until in year 12 students are responsible for the management of a commercial enterprise.

To develop the skills necessary for such a challenge students are expected to work independently and in small groups.

Students have access to a range of physical and intellectual resources including industry contacts, relevant IT resources and communication system. Students also undertake a number of excursions including a three day tour.
