In Agricultural Science classes we aim to give the students as many “hands on” real life experiences as possible.
Last week Kaden Sadler’s parents had a cow give birth to a still born calf. They kindly donated the calf to the school for education purposes. The Year 11 Agricultural Science students study the digestive system of ruminate animals as part of an external NCEA Achievement Standard that looks at livestock management. This was a great opportunity for them to experience what a real calf digestive system looks like and relate the organ structures to their functions. The Year 11 Agricultural Science students and Science department would like to thank the Sadler family for this wonderful learning opportunity
