Agriculture + Earth & Environment New Zealand Tour - Parents Info Evening

The inaugural Barker Agriculture + Earth & Environment trip to New Zealand will take place over 12 days in the September 2018 school holidays. It will be open only to students studying Agriculture in Years 10-11 or Earth & Environment in Year 11 in 2018. The tour is intended to inspire students who have an interest in Agriculture and/or Earth & Environment to see these subjects in real world contexts outside of Australia. The tour will include both Agriculture and Earth experiences for all participants, so students with interest in both areas are particularly encouraged to attend.
