Dear Parents and Carers,
A field trip has been organised for Year 12 Agriculture students and Year 12 students on Friday 15 June, 2018. They will visit Country Valley Milk, Fairleys Road, Picton to see first-hand a commercial processing factory and Sydney University Robotic Dairy, 3 Werombi Road, Camden. The purpose of this field trip is to meet the HSC Syllabus Product Study requirements, which is a compulsory requirement of this course.
Students must dress in practical attire with enclosed footwear. Each student must bring a clip board and writing materials as worksheets will need to be completed on the day. There are no shopping facilities so students are also required to bring their own morning tea, lunch and a water bottle.
The cost of the excursion per student is $58.00, which covers entry into the milk factory. Students are to meet at Marian Catholic College at 8:15am to depart for the excursion. Our expected return time to the College is 4pm. Students will need to make arrangements for their transport from Marian Catholic College to home.
Any physical permission notes and money must be returned to the student foyer in a sealed envelope clearly marked “YEAR 12 AGRICULTURE EXCURSION – 15 June 2018”, with the student’s name, homeroom and the amount of money enclosed.
All forms must be completed/returned by Friday 1 June, 2018.
The cost of the excursion has been closely calculated to cover the entry fees and bus charges. Excursions must pay for themselves, and for this reason refunds for non-attendance cannot be made.
If you have any concerns or queries regarding this excursion, please contact us at the College on 9654 6700.
Miss Sky Van den Berge
