a school that combines primary and secondary departments and was founded in 1923 to give rural children a prevocational education The three-year post-primary program included home science and gardening for females and agriculture, applied farm mechanics, and rural economics for boys. Agribusiness, home science, and technical courses were made accessible starting in 1926, with the Intermediate Certificate serving as the capstone test. All District Rural Schools were designated as Central Schools starting in 1944, but the schools frequently kept the unique title. Although in practice District Rural Schools were frequently no different from other types of post-primary schools even before the introduction of comprehensive secondary education, in theory it signified the sort of secondary course offered.
