On Saturday 28 September, Te Hihi School will hold our annual Ag Day & Country Fair and would like to extend the invitation to the local Franklin community.

Ag Day is an important tradition that has been part of the school calendar for many years - this year we will be focusing on some of the unique experiences inherent in a country school and the local rural community, all those old fashioned things that parents and grandparents grew up with when they were at school.

Come along and experience it for yourself!

Some of the exciting things that will be part of this year’s Ag Day:

Farm Animals 9am-11am: 

  • Some of the students have raised a lamb, chicken or goat kid and these will be shown and judged.

Entertainment for the kids from 11am:

  • We will have a climbing wall and a mega slide, a dunk tank, pony rides, go-cart rides, plus games, face painting, lucky dips and more!

A Young Farmer of the Year competition:

  • Open to all kids on the day, you are welcome to take part even if you don’t go to Te Hihi School.

Things to buy:

  • A cake stall, farmers market with plants and produce books & puzzles

Yummy things to eat:

  • Café selling scones, cupcakes, home baking, tea, coffee
  • BBQ selling hot sausages, burgers and lamb kebabs
  • A smoothie making stall – grab a smoothie that’s been made by riding a bike!

There is also:

  • A grocery raffle with 10 baskets of groceries to be won
  • An auction on the day and mystery envelopes with some fantastic prizes

Special Ag Day projects that the students have been working on will be displayed, alongside their craft creations.

Free parking and EFTPOS available.
