Coast to Country: Moruya High School’s Big Adventure

SAGE Garden, 110 Queen St Moruya, 4pm Friday 22nd November

For the past five years Moruya High’s HSC Agriculture, Earth and Environmental Science and Food Technology students have travelled inland to visit farms, national parks and rural communities on the annual HSC Field Trip.

We’ve camped under the stars and ancient red gums in Barmah Forest, drenched sheep in Deniliquin, caught carp in Narrandera and played with piglets in Echuca. Our teachers and students have forged connections with farming families and communities and developed an understanding of how other Australians live. 

Students get to see authentic connections between their HSC subjects and the real world. Learning, just like life, is not segmented into syllabuses. They return to school with a rich and sophisticated understanding of what it is to farm and manage the land.

Aimee Snowden of Little Brick Pastoral is an agriculture educator and advocate. She has worked tirelessly since our first field trip to organise learning activities and provide our students with access to some of the most innovative farms and environmentally significant sites in Australia. 

Aimee and the teachers and students of Moruya High School invite you to join them to learn more about our coast to country expeditions, the educational and personal significance of these journeys and how you can be involved in making this adventure even bigger.
