We look forward to Ag. Day every year- we go ahead rain or shine- so bring your gumboots and rain coat. Students and families start planning for Ag. Day in term 3, thinking about what to bring and also start animal training.
Below is an outline of what the day looks like. If you have further questions or thoughts, please contact the office.
Thursday 12 October: Horticultural exhibits prepared and placed in display areas in the hall. (sand saucers, vaseline saucers, floral arrangements, unusual floral containers, miniature gardens, recycled critters).There will also be a photo competition.
