Ag Day – Friday 23rd October 2020 – Update Number 1 – This year, Wainui School will celebrate its annual tradition of Ag Day on Friday 23rd October (subject to COVID-19 considerations at this stage). 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. Yes – calves are back this year after confirmation from MPI for their inclusion. We are ordering the day-old chicks again too (Brown Shavers). The chicks will be delivered to school after their August 21st hatch date. Orders to: firstname.lastname@example.org. Chicks are $10.00 each.
Children raising a pet lamb, calf, or kid goat to present in various categories is at the heart of Ag Day and ribbons are distributed at the conclusion of judging for each category. Children with their animals who receive 1st, 2nd, 3rd, or 4th place ribbons are eligible to represent Wainui School at the South Kaipara Schools Group Day which is held at Helensville Showgrounds.
