Ag Day and Country Fair 2021 – 2022 Information Coming Shortly2022-03-28T14:14:39+13:00


SADLY This year, Wainui School will not be able to celebrate its annual tradition of Ag Day and Country Fair. This day has become the biggest day for our families – parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, friends, past pupils, and our locals who are always  welcomed to this important community event.

Since the early 1950s, Ag Day, or more commonly known then as Calf Club Day, has been held annually at Wainui School. This day has various activities, both indoor and outdoor. 
Children raise a pet lamb, calf, kid goat or chicken to present in various categories. Ribbons are distributed at the conclusion of judging for each category. Each of the classrooms are also filled with the children’s artistic talents and these are also awarded certificates for excellence. There is yummy food and drinks to purchase and games, bouncy castles, and lots of prizes to be won. Some of the children will also be showing off their entrepreneurial skills and running market stalls.

It is part of the school curriculum and an official school day – probably the most fun day of the whole year for the kids! After all, a school day where you get to hang out with friends, eat, play, pet animals, win prizes… what can be better than that?

We may be able to in. some way invite animals to some form of judging or would when we return to a safe level at school. We are also hoping to have Young Farmer when we all return.

Principal Sponsor

Simone du Bernard from Harcourts Cooper & Co is our Principal Sponsor for this event for 2021. Thank you Simone!


Normally we ask for weekly donations of items that we can use for raffles, games and prizes. This year with the Alert Levels things are a bit different. Instead we’re asking you to collect the items at home (if you’re able) and then bring all of them to school in the first week of term 4. For more information please see the Ag Day Information Booklet below.
