There’s no sign of drought in the agricultural education sector with $165 million being injected into the system. The funding of the new Hurlstone Agricultural High School is set to create Australia’s most advanced agricultural school to date.

The new school will be an academically selective agricultural and, science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) school for 1500 students across NSW.

The students will have access to world class science, agriculture and technology facilities, as well as interactive learning spaces, and state of the art boarding and sporting facilities. Students will also have access to extensive farming land suitable for both intensive and progressive farming practices.

The future of agriculture in Australia will rely on scientific research and technology, innovation, improved food security and sustainable solution. This facility will provide a centre for our young people to learn advanced farming practices, boosting Australia’s competitive advantage in this rapidly expanding sector of our economy.
