Hands-on learning

MTLT-owned farmland near Wairarapa College enables hands-on learning for agricultural students. Studying agriculture as part of their secondary education includes practical learning with the benefit of the educational farm to supplement classroom theory.

On-farm work carried out by the students as part of their studies includes shearing, drenching and fencing. The farm’s close proximity to the College allows students to walk there for individual classes during the day.
