Brackenhurst students to travel 10,000 miles to help bring in the Harvest!

In October two Brackenhurst students who successfully completed their Extended Diploma in Agriculture in May will be catching a plane to Australia to bring in the cereal Harvest.

Harry and Ryan will fly out to Perth, Western Australia and then make the 400km trip into the outback by bus.

They will be working on two separate farms for three months and estimate to be assisting in the combining of 100,000 acres of cereal crops.

Head of Agriculture at Brackenhurst campus, Dominic Heneghan, said: "Both students worked hard during their time at Brackenhurst; Harry achieving high grades and the award for Top Practical student and Ryan successfully sitting numerous exams to achieve his PA certificates.

"Both are highly skilled and an asset to any farm whether home or away."

We would like to wish them both a safe trip and hope that they enjoy their time down under!
