Schools Property Planning Competition

High school agriculture students from across the Northern Tablelands are participating in the 2020 Schools Property Planning Competition. In previous years the Schools Property Planning Competition has commenced with an on-farm field day but, in the interest of student and staff safety as a result of COVID-19, we will deliver the competition with online resources.

The Schools Property Planning Competition assists teachers in the delivery of property planning and sustainable farm management practices and principles to their agricultural students. Participating either individually or in small groups, students are given the scenario that they are consultants contracted by the landholder to prepare a property plan to ensure profitability and sustainability of the farm business.

The learning outcomes link to the Agriculture Stage 6 Subject 'Farm Case Study' and the competition is targeted at students in year 11. Participation in the competition is free.


The Schools Property Planning Competition Manual: Brookfield (PDF 5MB) provides all of the background information and resources required to complete the property plan.

The Schools Property Planning Competition Student Entry Package (PDF 730KB) explains what is required in the students' property plan for entry in the competition. The Student Entry Package is also available as a word document so that you can download and type straight into the document.
