Primary Industries Pathways Expo

Tuesday 30th April

This is our first Pathway Expo for the year and it is dedicated to the Primary Industries Vocational Pathway and will be held from 11am – 2pm in the School Hall. It is aimed at all Year 10 - 13 students and all are expected to attend, but there is also time at lunch time for other year groups to visit, and for those who have already visited, to return.

The format will be the same as the previous Pathway Expo’s held last year ie, there will be 20 minute time slots for groups of approximately 50 students and teachers. This gives everyone an opportunity to interact with the businesses and training organisations.

Confirmed Participants so far include: Ravensdown, Pye Group, Port Blakely, Oceania Dairy, Lincoln University, Ruralco, Ara, Ministry for Primary Industries (MPI), Barkers, Sanford, Talleys, Primary ITO, Turley Farms and Silver Fern Farms with a couple more yet to confirm.

Geraldine High School has already hosted Pathway Expos for the Construction & Infrastructure, Manufacturing & Technology, Service Industries and Social & Community Services Vocational Pathways in 2017 & 2018.
