Enlightened by nature
Set on 178 hectares, the bushland surrounding Frensham not only shapes the School’s character, but the character of the girls who call it home. During their time here, students develop a deep appreciation of the natural world that surrounds them.
The School has one of the few on-campus farms in Australia. It is a unique resource in which Agriculture students grow and harvest vegetables, raise and train show cattle and sheep, and manage the daily operations of a working farm.
A core part of the Jamieson Programme is that students take action to protect the environment. Working with the local council, Frensham is part of the Community Environment Network and the School’s grounds are a designated Land for Wildlife area.
