Country Day

Puni School holds its Country Day in late September/early October each year.  Pupils can exhibit calves, lambs or kid goats.  The animals will be judged upon their rearing, leading and calling abilities (Calves do not do calling).  Country Day for 2017 is on Saturday 30 September.

Pupils may also exhibit chickens and these are judged upon rearing and heaviest pullet.  Chickens are ordered as a one day old chick through the School in July.

Judges from the Franklin Agricultural & Pastoral Association are asked to judge the events.
  The following cups are competed for:

Calves
* Junior & Senior Leading
* Junior & Senior Best Cared for Calf
* Best Dairy Type (Heavy Breed)
* Best Dairy Type (Light Breed)
* Best Dairy Type - Overall

2017 Country Day Assignments - these will be listed below once the teachers have confirmed these - usually around July each year.  The links below will give you an idea of what the children may have to do if they choose to do an activity.
Puni pupils who cannot raise a traditional animal are to produce assignments in either the Horticulture Section or the Indoor Exhibits Section.

The classrooms will be open for viewing, food is on sale and a number of fun activities are organised for the children.

To assist you the following articles are attached for your information.
