Urrbrae Agricultural High School is the only comprehensive special interest agricultural secondary school in South Australia. It is recognised as a centre of excellence in student learning with a focus on agriculture, technology and the environment. Established as an Agricultural High School in 1932, it has continued to educate South Australian secondary students in an agriculturally focussed curriculum to the present day. It is also recognised as a focus school in environmental education, landcare and technology. These subjects are integrated across the school curriculum. Alongside these specialist subjects, Urrbrae students study the normal range of secondary school subjects except languages other than English, or can choose from the specialised certificate courses at senior school level.

MEMORIAL GROVE PROJECT

We are currently doing work on the Memorial Grove on the Eastern side of the school oval.

History of the Memorial Grove:
Not long after the school was opened in 1932 a large number of students were involved in World War II. 18 of these lost their lives in various countries and in 1946 a grove of Arizona Cypress (Cupressus arizonica) trees was planted near the school on 26 July as a memorial to those students who died. This grove now forms the western edge of the school oval.
2 students who fought in the Vietnam war also lost their lives and they are commemorated in the grove with Lone Pine trees (Pinus alleppo).
This year 2014 we are commemorating those Urrbrae students who made the ultimate sacrifice for their  country. 10 of the trees are being replaced  in a tree planting ceremony to coincide closely with Anzac Day

As part of the project, existing plaques to commemorate members who served in both the Royal Australian Air Force in World War 11 and Vietnam are being restored.  We are seeking the relatives of the following:  Graham A Grant  (RAAF), David Underwood (RAAF), Geoffrey Burgan (RAAF), Robert G Wesley-Smith (RAAF), David W Petch (RAAF), Keith W Gratton (AMF), Leonard Whibley (RAAF), Peter M Piggot (AMF) and Peter F Newman(AMF).

If you have any information please contact David Kempe, S&E Teacher, at the school on 8372 6955 or email:

*** Parking at Urrbrae ***

When dropping off and collecting students, parents are asked to use the car park adjacent to Student Services on Fullarton Road, as this car park is likely to be less congested than the main southern car park between Block A and the farm.  The Student Services car park is easily accessed from Fullarton Road via gates A and B. 

Parents and students are reminded that there is no parking for Urrbrae available at the Waite Campus on Fullarton Road, even for dropping off and collecting students.  At this time of the year, many of the large trees under which cars have recently parked are highly stressed.  Several have dropped limbs without warning following the January hot weather; please do not place yourself, your child or your vehicle at risk by parking in this area.
