Ag Day Information

posted Sep 21, 2017, 7:21 PM by Reception @TMCS

We are celebrating our ‘Country School’ status with a whole week of Agricultural and Horticultural activities, culminating in our Ag Day on Friday 20th October.  We are continuing with the traditional A & P Show approach. Week 1 of Term 4 will be our ‘Agriculture Week’.

This year, Tamahere School is hosting Group Day. This event takes place the following week on the 25th of October. Anyone can enter for Group Day, whether the child’s animal received a ribbon or not. Entry forms will be handed out on Ag Day by Renee Ward and Tracy Bourke.


All of our children will be involved in our special rural day - agriculture as well as horticulture will be celebrated on the day. While children with farm animals and caged pets will be out with their animals, the rest of the children in the school will be involved in a section called Horticultural Happenings. These children will be creating a variety of displays and arrangements selected from the list below - also for judging.


On the day, all of our children will be able to enjoy seeing the young farm animals as well as the pets and horticultural creations.


Classrooms will be open for viewing on Friday 20th, to share some of the week’s activities. As well as this, there will be specific judging areas to visit with the Friday Horticultural Happenings on display. Pet diaries are due at school on Monday 16th October.


We are looking forward to a great day and hope you are able to join us on this special day.
