Last years Scholarship Recipient, Ihākara Pene was studying through Taratahi College. The skills he gained at this Institute prepared him for further study and being able to start working out the farms. We were fortunate enough to get a placement over the school holidays for Ihākara in Whakaue Farming Limited where he did paid work on the whenua. The Farm Managers were pleased with his work and keen on having him back!
It would be great to have our own rangatahi skilled and qualified to run our farms in the future. If this sounds like something you might be interested in, then check out the website for Taratahi College on the link below to find out more info!!
