Corinda State High School is situated only a few kilometres from the heart of Brisbane city centre, but when you visit the school farm it's easy to think you're out in the bush.
The school farm is a hub of activity, and houses a range of livestock that the students care for under the guidance of the agricultural teaching and support staff. There are cattle, sheep, ponies, chickens, and the latest arrivals are three alpacas. The farm also has vegie gardens and beds.
The farm offers students the opportunity to get hands-on with livestock and learn about animal handling and they can also undertake a Certificate II in Agriculture.
Due to the school's position and the range of agriculture it offers, it has been the location over the last two years for the annual event of Moo Baa Munch. This has given the school the opportunity to showcase what it offers students, but has also given students the opportunity to be part of an event that draws interest from industry, government, media and the general public, as well as other schools.
Corinda SHS is a great example of city meets country, and shows what can be achieved to teach students about agriculture in a city landscape.
