Glenfield. Government accepts farm findings

The Minister for Education and Training, Verity Firth, has announced the NSW Government will accept the findings of the Peters Inquiry into the future of Hurlstone Agricultural High School, at Glenfield. “I will be instructing the Department of Education to implement the inquiry’s key recommendation which is to abandon plans to sell the majority of farm land from the school site. We have also accepted the report’s recommendation to sell 10 hectares at the western edge of the site, with 100 per cent of the proceeds to be used to revitalise the school, including improving the boarding facilities and farm infrastructure,” she said. The former head of the NSW Farmers Federation, Mal Peters, found there were significant opportunities to revitalise the school to ensure it delivered a world-class agricultural education.
