Te Hihi School Agricultural Day
Ag Day will be held on Saturday, 28 September 2019
One of the main highlights on the school's calendar is our annual Agricultural Day. Traditionally the school's Ag Day replicated the district A&P Show with both an indoor section and animal section.
The animal section retains tradition and is an opportunity for children to celebrate their achievements in raising a chicken, lamb, kid goat or calf from being just a few days old. In the animal section children need to be able to talk about their animal, what challenges they've had raising it and showing how well they've bonded with the animal by leading it around a course in the show ring and calling it to them.
Please note, due to mycoplasma bovis there was no calf section for 2018; however a decision has not yet been made for 2019.
The day before Ag Day is given over to the children preparing indoor exhibits celebrating their skills in art and craft. Traditionally the exhibits were floral arrangements or linked in some way to food with either vegetable animals or baking.
Being held on a Saturday, the school welcomes wider family members and the community to come and have a great day with the children and their animals.
