Sienna and Arian’s Pathway to Personal Excellence

Career updates from Sienna and Arian

Sisters, Sienna Tolomei and Arian Sienna both attended our School during the formative periods of their educational journey and have both gone on to pursue careers in Agriculture and Landscape Architecture. The girls do not hail from a farming background but due to the agricultural pathways and strong farming network available at Guildford Grammar School, they decided to make the most of these unique opportunities.

The School has recently announced the launch of the Agribusiness ATAR course for 2024. This course is aimed at training young people with a comprehensive understanding of the agriculture industry and its contribution to the Australian economy.  

The 2024 Agribusiness ATAR course includes up-to-date industry trends, innovative technologies and practical business skills that are necessary for success in the agriculture industry. It provides students such as Sienna and Arian tangible opportunities to enter a booming Western Australian industry. 

Sienna is currently working with CBH and has now completed two seasons with them in their head office liaising with farmers regarding their crop contracts and delivery services. She has done this whilst also completing her degree in Agriculture at Murdoch University, with her aim to become an Agronomist in the farming industry.

Arian was also accepted to do Agriculture at Murdoch University, but put this on hold to participate in the AgCareerStart Program that is run by the National Farmer’s Federation.

Featured in the most recent issue of R.M.Williams OUTBACK magazine, Arian praised her experiences in the AgCareerStart program which she was introduced to through our school. She has enjoyed learning how to drive a front-end loader, cropping work and stock handling.

Since her AgCareerStart placement, Arian has commenced a training program with Greenscape Collective, operated by Old Guildfordian Joshua O’Keefe (SG 2004-2005). In addition, Arian is completing her Certificate IV in Horticulture with the view of pursuing a degree in Landscape Architecture.

Both Sienna and Arian were thrilled to hear that Guildford Grammar School is among the first in WA to offer ATAR Agribusiness to Year 11 students in 2024.

Demand will continue for agricultural skills, innovative production and marketing methods. We look forward to providing future students with extraordinary opportunities to learn about one of the most important industries in Western Australia.
