Y10 Agriculture & Horticulture

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mr P. Martin

Do you like working outside and still learning? In the Hort area, you will be growing plants in your plot and in containers, raising one day old chicks for a term and learning skills, such as tying fencing knots. In the classroom, we will be learning to recognise farm animal breeds and horticultural plant groups. We will be studying topics such as animal health, biosecurity, management practices that occur on farms and orchards and topics of student interest.

Field trips will be taken to gain experience of the primary sector.
