Marlborough Girls College
Hayley’s highlight in the course so far has been learning how to use chainsaws. This wasn’t something she’d done before so she was quite apprehensive about it at first. “The tutors are pretty chilled but have a lot of knowledge and experience, so this gave me the confidence to give it a go”. Hayley says she has learned a lot and is now a confident user of a chainsaw. She’s also looking forward to the next module which is all about how to use and ride ATVs safely.
Next year, Hayley plans to return to school and continue her Primary Industries studies through the Gateway programme. She would eventually like to go and study at the Telford Agricultural College, focusing on sheep farming.
