Teacher in Charge: Mr P. Martin

This is a course for students who have an interest in the Primary Sector (agriculture, horticulture and also forestry, seafood, equine). The course is based upon industry topics and works towards the New Zealand Certificate in Primary Industry Skills as well as NCEA.
