- Course Outline:
At Year 9, students learn why agriculture is important to New Zealand and why we are so successful at it. Students learn about different types of farms, how and why they are different, about the types of animals and plants on them and the environmental impact of farming.
Assessment is by means of written tests and project work.
- Where Does It Lead:
Year 10, NCEA Level 1, 2, and 3 Agricultural/Horticultural Science. Agriculture is mostly about modern farming theories and methods. It is of use not only to people intending to pursue a career in farming or the many other related areas, but it also gives a better understanding and appreciation of our NZ way of life, our pets, home gardens and even ourselves.
