This year, Wainui School will celebrate its annual tradition of Ag Day on Friday 22nd October. This day has become the biggest day for our families – parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, friends, and past pupils are all welcomed to this important community event.
To enter an animal, the lamb, calf or kid goat must be born between 1st July and 15th September. We are ordering the day old chicks again too (Brown Shavers).The chicks will be delivered to school after theirAugust hatch date. Orders need to be given to the office before Friday 2nd July: email@example.com Chicks are $10.00 each.
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 or kid goat or a chicken to present in various categories. Ribbons are distributed at the conclusion of judging for each category.This day has always attracted our parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, friends, and past pupils to this important community event. It is the biggest day for families!
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 and talk mum and dad into buying all kinds of cool stuff… what can be better than that?
