Agriculture Day – Friday 20th October 2017

posted Jul 5, 2017, 8:17 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’.  Now is a good time to be thinking about your animal to show.  Lambs must be born on or after 1st July 2017 and Calves early 10th June - 31st July 2017, late 1st August 2017 onwards.


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. We will be able to enjoy these experiences together, with everyone around to enjoy the grand parade and prize giving.

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.
