What we offer

Design is underway for a Centre of Excellence in agricultural education co-located at the Western Sydney University Hawkesbury campus.

This project proposes to deliver a contemporary agricultural education facility which will be used as a state-wide resource, delivering world class agricultural and Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) education.

The Centre will work in partnership with the University, TAFE, Richmond High School and industry and its programs will be available for schools throughout NSW.

Throughout our design and construction phase we will provide updates of the facilities and programs on offer at Richmond Agricultural College - Centre of Excellence in Agricultural Education Campus.

You can also follow the development of our project on the SINSW website:
