Agriculture

Agriculture is an option subject in Years 9 and 10.  The students focus on basics of farming: dairy, sheep and beef.  

The school's two working farms provide practical experience for all our students in these aspects.  

Full NCEA courses are offered at year 11 and 12.  Year 13 offers the single NZQA Agricultural and Horticultural Sciences programme.

A number of ITO (industry based) courses are also offered at the school and are also supported by the school farms.

Primary Industries courses are offered at Years 11 and 12.  These trade academy classes are designed to give students the practical skills and experience so that they can pursue a career in the primary industries.  They work towards a Certificate in Agriculture in year 11, 12 and 13.

The other ITO course offered is Animal Studies.
