Agrikids - 2015

Today, six Year 5 & 6 children from our school participated in the Northern Regional Agrikids Finals held at the Dargaville Field Days Site.  The children were Jessie, Harry and Josh ('The Farming Saints') and Saoirse, Logan and Alex ('The Three Wise Shepherds').  Their task was to complete a variety of farming activities within a certain time frame, these included:
1.  identifying the age of a tree
2.  identifying different types of milk
3.  identification and matching of vegetables in the garden
4.  how to take care of animals
5.  answering general farming questions
6.  animal identification
7.  horse shoe throwing
8.  seed identification and matching activity
9.  safety on the farm 
Overall, both teams represented the school with distinction, and had loads of fun, despite the rain and wind.  Special thanks to the parents who assisted with transport and support.

  1. This looks like a lot of fun. I was a farming girl when I was younger. We did lots of things like this when I was living on a farm.
