South School AgriKids
This year we had so many children wishing to enter the Regional Finals for the Agri-Kids that we had to hold a competition at school to decide on the top 8 teams that could go through.
These 8 teams competed in a range of different modules to try and get enough points to get them into the top 7 for the race-off. This was going to be a huge achievement with 45 teams competing from all over the East Coast region. Some of the modules included: putting a bridle together, assembling a gate, naming a range of farm items, dipping a sheep, sorting milk into categories, linking meat with the animal and also assembling.
2017 Race Off
This year the Nationals are held in Feilding. We are currently studying hard for this competition.
2016 National Finals
At the East Coast Regional Final, the ‘Dannevirke Drafters’ had to compete against 43 other teams. They placed third, which secured them a place at the National Finals. These finals were held in Timaru.
After the flight down to Christchurch we then hired a car and made it to Timaru, just in time to take part in the parade through the main street.
