Agricultural days foster an interest in farming, as well as teaching the children the responsibility involved with the care and well being of a pet.
It also helps the children to develop an understanding of the importance of animal welfare issues such as feed, shelter, handling and health.
Each year, each school in the Raglan District holds a local day and then all children from all four schools are encouraged to participate in Group Day. The dates for this year are below:
Wednesday 5th October:
– Te Uku School / Raglan Area School held at Te Uku School, judging starts at 10.00am
– Waitetuna School held at Waitetuna School, judging starts at 10.00am
Thursday 6th October:
– Te Mata School held at Te Mata School, judging starts at 10.00am
Saturday 8th October:
– Raglan Agricultural Group Day held at Te Mata School, judging starts at 10.00am
It is a great family day out! If your child / children want to get up close to lambs, calves and kid goats, this is the perfect opportunity.
At Group Day there will be the traditional BBQ food available, along with great raffles. We would love to see as many people as possible come and support our local students with their pets.
