Teen Ag and Agrikids
The competition consisted of 8 practical and theoretical tasks
that we had to complete. We had to put tyres on a trailer and strop them
down, check the diesel to see if it contained water and identify different types of
wool. We had 13 Teen Ag teams entered in the competition and 1 of the teams
(Patrick & Mitchell) made it to the top 5 teams face off which was a race
to build a camp site which included making wooden furniture. The day was really
well run by the young farmers and the Primary Industry classes and was rated
one of the top regional finals this year and the most successful under the new
Of our 8 Agri-kid teams, 2 made it to the top 7 race-off with Angus Wallace, Robert Furrer and William Wilson coming 3rd overall and winning a place in the National Final in July. Conor Foley-Smith, Innes Hanrahan & Kyle Hansen were placed 5th overall. Zettlin McAtamney-Rasch was named Top Overall Teen Ag competitor which places him in the top 7 competitors in New Zealand this year.
Thank you to all the awesome parents who supported us all on the day especially Ruth Goodwin, Tracey Moffitt, Andrew Rasch & Carolyn McAtamney-Rasch.
The highly successful day was completed with a meeting between the PIA classes and Young Farmer Executive to plan the organisation of the Grand Final later in the year.
