Agriculture Day

Ag Day at Ohaupo School is a great event to get involved in. Every October we invite students to raise a calf, lamb or kid (goat), look after it, groom and train it ready for bringing to Ag Day. Students learn about caring for their animals, develop patience and determination, use initiative and self-reliance and gain a better understanding of animal welfare. There is also an indoor art and flower display, with a baking competition too. This enables children who cannot raise an animal at home to participate in the friendly competition of the day and to feel pride in their achievements.

All students entering an animal for Ag Day must complete the Entry Form (the entry form is available from the school office in Term 3) and hand it in at the school office. Dates for 2021 are yet to be confirmed, please check back here or the newsletter for updates.

Good luck and we hope you enjoy Ag Day !
