Bisley Farm is a project of the Shaftesbury Centre. The farm is an extension of the curriculum of Arethusa College – an independent school established by Shaftesbury that focuses on young people who have disengaged from mainstream schooling. The goals of the farm are based on a number of key areas in working with young people at risk.
Young people participate in a wide range of work experience opportunities on the farm that relate to the operation of a beef-cattle stud. Young people assist the full-time farm manager in the overall running of the property.
Students will have the chance to learn a variety of skills in relation to the beef-cattle industry.
Bisley Farm Supporters
Both the Rotary Club of Bribie Island and Foodbank have given support to Bisley Farm.
A project was designed which would include all the requirements of the Rotary Foundation’s Mission Statement. An application was successfully submitted to the Rotary District for a grant which enabled BISLEY FARM to begin.
The Project’s goal is to raise cattle on Bisley Farm at Arethusa College near Burpengary and to send processed beef to Charity.
This project will become self sustaining increasing as cattle are bred and students learn cattle handling, farm maintenance, and other valuable skills.
