Commerce Course Changes

In 2021 we are amending our Commerce courses at Hastings Boys' High School and will offer a Management and International Business course, alongside Business Studies.  The MIB course will be made up of a mix of Accounting, Economics, Business Studies and AgriBusiness standards for students in Years 11 to 13.  This will also cover various types of financial investments and the use of Sharesies in Year 12 and 13.  

We would like to encourage members of our school community to come into school to share their experiences in any of these areas with the classes.  The dates and times are flexible, as are the topics covered - it could range from personal experiences in business ownership, investments, tertiary education in Commerce etc.  

Similarly, we are also hoping to involve community members as mentors for our Business Studies groups participating in the Young Enterprise Scheme in Year 12 and 13.  This mentorship could be both in person or online through regular zoom/google meets sessions.

If you would be interested in helping with either of these options, or being involved in any other way, please contact Kevin Atkinson (HOD Commerce) at or Paula Ferrick at

Thank you in advance for your involvement.
