Level 1 Primary Industry

Mrs Sarah Foley-Smith —

The class have been hard out fencing in preparation for their assessment next term and are also clocking up their quad and motorbike hours. We visited Farm Fresh Home Kill to see a couple of cattle being processed and this will be followed by a trip to Silver Fern Farms' Pareora Plant early next term.

We have also completed a couple more tree planting sessions and as a result have been able to purchase the wet weather jackets for both classes. These are from Betacraft who are major sponsors of the FMG Young Farmer competition. Students also have hoodies sponsored by Rylib Farming so we all look pretty flash out and about!
