Federated Farmers Charitable Society has adopted Te Kauwhata College as part of Smart Waikato's Secondary School Employer Partnerships (SSEP).

Year 9 and 10 science and food technology students from the school are working with Fonterra, Pokeno Bacon, Sonja Gardner Nutrition, Daniel Hall Engineering, Intelact and farmers Steve and Julie Nelson to see how science and food technology learning applies in the agriculture industry.

Smart Waikato chief executive Mary Jensen commends Federated Farmers Charitable Society for sponsoring the college to support real-world learning, from pasture-to-plate, in agriculture.

Smart Waikato will roll the initiative out to other schools in Waikato as funding permits.
