Year 13 Science Primary Industries

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mr M. Dryburgh

Level 2 and Year 13 Secondary Primary Industries are highly practical courses for students who are interested in a career in primary industries and learning practical skills.

What will I learn and how will I learn?
Students will learn about Mustelid pests and how to trap and control numbers. They will also learn basic fencing practices and will build a fence as a team and have the opportunity to gain a safety certificate in the safe operation of a chainsaw. The course will provide further instruction in skills need to work in the primary industries, eg, Agrichemical use.

Conditions of Assessment
NCEA internal assessments allow a flexible approach to the collection of achievement evidence. Therefore, assessment conditions will vary from theoretical assessments, supervised by the teacher, to practical performance assessments. All assessments will be monitored by the subject teacher to ensure authenticity of student work. Specific assessment conditions will be provided for individual achievement standards.

Submitting Internal Assessments
All work for assessment must be submitted to the teacher by the due date.  Any work not submitted for assessment by the deadline will receive a ‘Not Achieved’ grade. If students are sick on the day their work is due, they must get a doctor’s certificate.  (Read over Student Handbook for full assessment details).  APA Referencing must be used if relevant to the task.

Resubmissions and Further Assessment Opportunities
All standards have a resubmission opportunity.  Time and pace of learning will dictate whether further assessment opportunities can occur.
