It is always a busy and productive time at St Paul's College, as it explores next generation learning opportunities for students.

"We acknowledge that students need different skills and capabilities to succeed and contribute as able citizens in the future," director, teaching and learning Jessica Cottrell said.

"We place a strong focus on collaboration in the classroom, critical thinking and creativity, which the students love. We acknowledge that our students will be young adults of tomorrow in a world that will look very different from today."

St Paul's also continues to have a strong focus on student wellbeing. Recently the college launched its Agriculture Development Plan for the next three years.

"Our plan will further develop and enhance our agriculture/farming curriculum and experience for our students, enabling them to be future-ready for what farming might look like tomorrow," principal Don Walkley said.

"We have already been fortunate to secure funds to upgrade our farm infrastructure. The college will also investigate opportunities to enhance community engagement, broaden our range of livestock, and introduce a cropping program.

"In addition, students will hopefully have the opportunity to engage in a variety of formal training courses outside of school."

St Paul's is set on 95 acres, 40 minutes from the centre of Albury-Wodonga, offering day, casual, weekly, and full boarding.
