Students attending First Links are generally aged from 11 – 14.

These students attend our agricultural program which is excursion-based and addresses:  social skills, relationships, literacy and numeracy, general farming skills and outdoor education. Students have the opportunity to share in the maintenance work required on a farm, animal husbandry and team building activities. Classes are small and there is a great deal of attention paid in addressing the barriers that are stopping students from achieving their best.


Once the students have reached 15 and have developed the necessary skills for learning they move into the regular timetabled classes at the Ballarat Learning Exchange.
