Level 1 - The class have completed their Farm Bikes assessment day at AgriLearn with the students demonstrating the skills that they have been practicing over the last few months. Our students were very well prepared and achieved good results. The top students were Emily Goodwin, Scott Moffitt and Zettlin McAtamny-Rasch. The class have also completed their school practical assessments during exam week with a total of 8 tasks assessed during the week which contribute to their practical achievement standard.

We have tailing coming up during the holidays and Austin Guerin has kindly offered the class a small mob of ewes to look after, which we will start by tailing and then continue looking after them at key times during the following year. Thank you to Austin for setting this up for us and providing the chance to hone our animal handling skills close to Geraldine!

Level 2 are completing their last week of on-farm placement this week. Our fabulous farmers have been invaluable teachers for the students who have learnt so much during the year. Thank you for your time and patience.
