Attention Year 7 & 8 students

Temuka & Geraldine A & P Show, Saturday 3rd March and Young Farmer AgriKids Competitions

Entries are now open for teams of three to compete at the A & P Show. Students need to be in Year 7 or 8. It is a fun event where teams compete across 8 modules of about 5 minutes each; simple farming type tasks with plenty of help available if you get stuck and run by the friendly Primary Industry classes.

Young Farmer Agrikids Competition

Entries are open for teams of 3 Year 7 and/or Year 8 students to enter the Young Farmer Regional Competition on Saturday 14th April (first Saturday of the next holidays) in Waimate. This is a more serious event  and farming experience is necessary. Choose your team carefully as it is handy to have a practical person, a sheep/dairy/deer farmer and someone good at English/Maths. Entries are limited so teams need to be in by the end of next week to Mrs Foley-Smith.

Students are able to enter both events if they want.

Either email your team to [email protected] or keep an eye on the notices for the meeting at school next week.
