WBHS Fraser Farm

A big 'thumbs up' to our Old Boys Murray Isbister, Dave Ruddenklau and Ray Fox who are regularly volunteering their knowledge, time and resources supporting the various farm activities

Of note... 'An exciting innovation for 2016 was the introduction of the Fraser Farm Scholarships. These three scholarships of $3000 each are available to year 9 boys coming into the hostel in 2017.
The year 11 Agriculture class from Waitaki Girls’ High School has been attending practical sessions at Fraser Farm. Most of the students achieved unit standards in basic tractor and ATV driving and temporary electric fencing, ably assisted by the year 12 boys. Hopefully this co-operation between the two  schools will extend into 2017. Source Oamaru Mail
