Rutherglen has a fully operational farm where students learn about different aspects of farming including animal husbandry, vegetable growing, building and construction and business. The School offers an Agriculture program – VCE Agriculture, and the ‘Farm-to-Table’ subject at Year 9, as part of our alternative Year 9 Future Makers program.
Currently the farm runs chickens, ducks, sheep and steers. Seasonal vegetables are grown organically.
Our Cattle Team have been involved in the Parader’s Competition and the Carcase Competition run by the Melbourne Royal Agricultural Show Society, with great success in the past. The team won the prestigious Borthwick Trophy three years in a row!
