VIDEO projects and finance options were among student projects at the field days on Wednesday.

Holy Trinity Lutheran College student Nathan Rokebrand used the event to work on a film project with fellow students Thomas Bolwell and Cassie Hateley.

Among their work for the day was taking footage from the top of some of the largest machinery on site.

Nathan said the project was not part of a particular class at the Horsham school, but rather an extra-curricular activity open to students interested in television and film production.

“We work in lunchtimes in the computer lab,” he said.

“We’ve written up a bit of a plan for today and we’ll try to stick to that.

“There’s nothing in particular we want to look at – we’ll just see what interesting things we can find.”

Longerenong College students were also out in force at the event on Wednesday. 

Students had time to explore the various offerings at the field days, but also had assessments to complete while there.

Katie McPherson said tutors encouraged students to focus on finance and banking in particular.

“They wanted us to look at finance options and compare equipment and prices, and what different companies offer,” she said.

Kate Crettenden said she was interested in the accounting side of farming.

Other students said seeing the range of machinery on site was also a highlight.
