Wainui School’s Ag Day this year is on Friday 25 October 2019

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?

Ag Day Updates

Update #7

I’m sure many of you will have your Ag day animals already but you have until 15th September (this is the last date for them to be born) to get your kid goat or lamb for this year.  There will be NO calves again this year.

Just a note for new families – children may only have ONE pet to care for. A lamb or kid goat or chick. The students will need to be with their pet when judging takes place on Ag Day.

For all children who don’t have an animal to care for, the expectation is that they have a Pet Egg which they create a habitat for. We have had many and varied habitats created over the years and it’s always amazing to see what the children come up with. The Pet Eggs in their habitats will be judged at school on Ag Day.

Ag Day booklets are available from the office.  These are full of information about rearing animals, classroom displays and what actually happens on Ag Day itself.
