Ag Day for Marotiri kids

Taupo & Turangi Weekender - - News -

Marotiri School cel­e­brated its an­nual Ag Day re­cently in balmy sum­mer weather un­der cloud­less skies.

A huge turnout of chil­dren, par­ents, grand­par­ents, the com­mu­nity and spon­sors shared food, Young Farm­ers agri-skills ac­tiv­i­ties, an imag­i­na­tive ar­ray of “scare­crows” and show an­i­mals — lambs, dogs and other pets. As calves were judged on their home farms this year, they were not on show for pub­lic scru­tiny.

Stu­dents had worked over many weeks cre­at­ing their class­room ex­hibits in the form of 3D art, flo­ral ar­range­ments and cre­ative ex­am­ples of bak­ing.

Spon­sors pro­vided a num­ber of var­ied ar­ti­cles for auc­tion which in­cluded an All Black’s jer­sey signed by Brodie Re­tal­lick, farm cloth­ing, and fer­tiliser, which in­duced spir­ited bid­ding be­fore raf­fles were drawn by Mayor David Tre­wavas.

Chil­dren and an­i­mals en­joyed Marotiri School’s Ag Day.
