Agriculture Grants for 2020

Department of Education

11 October 2019

Schools are surveyed annually to gather information on the number of students studying the Agriculture, Agricultural Technology Years 7-10, Agriculture Stage 6 and the Primary Industries VET course.

The funding arrangements for the teaching and learning of agriculture are based on:

  • funding allocated predominantly for Stage 5 and 6 agriculture electives and Primary Industries to support the operation of the agriculture plot as a teaching and learning resource
  • the equitable distribution of funds based on a formula related to student numbers in elective agriculture classes
  • the availability of funds for the on-going maintenance of equipment items, such as the teaching and learning tractor, used in the teaching and learning of agriculture subjects, especially those where safety is a concern.

Please arrange for completion and return of the attached survey (PDF 804KB) by Friday, 25 October 2019.

The information submitted will be used to calculate your school?s agricultural grant entitlement for 2020.

SURVEY FORMS should be completed and returned via email to
