GRAHAM Scott

Scott Graham is the 2021 recipient of the Prime Minister’s Prize for Excellence in Science Teaching in Secondary Schools. 

Head of Agriculture at Barker College in New South Wales, Scott Graham is changing the way agricultural science is taught at secondary schools, by developing unique programs to engage students and emphasise the positive difference agriculture makes to society. 

Mr Graham draws on 12 years of teaching experience to educate students about the importance of agriculture in Australia, and the employment opportunities in this scientific and business-driven field. 

Under his leadership, student enrolments in agriculture at Barker College have tripled over the past seven years. The school has more than double the number of Year 12 agriculture students than any other school in Australia. Around 30 per cent of these students have gone on to pursue agriculture-related degrees at university level.
