Dear Students, Parents, Caregivers, and Visitors,
It is with great pleasure that I extend a warm welcome to Urrbrae Agricultural High School, South Australia’s distinguished specialist agriculture, horticulture, and Agritech public high school.
Nestled on a sprawling 35-hectare property, our school stands as a testament to a unique educational experience. With a working farm that includes a diverse range of farm and native animals, as well as a meticulously designed environmentally sustainable wetland area in collaboration with the City of Mitcham Council, we provide a distinctive setting for students to explore the fascinating worlds of agriculture and technology.
Urrbrae Agricultural High School serves as a hub for both metropolitan and regional students, offering unparalleled opportunities for personal and academic growth. Our dedicated staff, equipped with extensive and diverse skill sets, create an environment where students can develop skills, gain knowledge, and acquire experiences that pave the way for tertiary education, vocational pursuits, and rural post-school opportunities.
At Urrbrae, we go beyond academics. Our focus extends to fostering values of gratitude, empathy, and mindfulness within our diverse contexts. As encapsulated by our school motto, “Science with Practice,” we embrace the concept of strength-based, inquisitive learning opportunities within STEM and Agritec frameworks.
Our commitment to holistic education is reflected in our facilities, which provide a platform for students to engage in hands-on, practical experiences. From laboratories to the serene expanses of our wetland area, every aspect of our school is designed to nurture curiosity and innovation.
As we embark on this educational journey together, I encourage each student to explore, question, and discover their passions. Urrbrae Agricultural High School is not just a place of learning; it is a community where dreams take root and grow.
Thank you for considering Urrbrae Agricultural High School as your next educational option. We look forward to an enriching and rewarding journey with each and every one of you.
Todd George, Principal, Urrbrae Agricultural High School
