A huge thank you to our PTA and their famiies for the massive amount of work they put in to make the annual Ag Day Event such a great success, the money that the PTA annually raise goes towards much needed rescources for our school.

AG Day Round-Up

AG Day continues to be a great community event. With the rain holding off on Saturday the turn-out was fantastic.  The PTA would like to say a big thank you to everyone that came along and supported Dairy Flat School’s biggest fundraiser of the year! 

AG Day could not run as it did without the help of so many of our parents, grandparents, past parents, past pupils and judges giving up their time and skills to fill the rosters, help with set-up and clean-up, and much more.  Thank you!

A huge thank you to all our sponsors and donors, from the big to the small, every bit makes a difference!  Thank you for getting in behind our little school!

With the passing of both Charlie and Dalice Earwaker earlier this year we would once again like to thank the Earwaker family for their continued support of this event, in particular with the use of their farm for parking, and say thanks to three of Charlie and Dalice’s children Colleen, Steve and Lyn for coming along on the day to present the new Earwaker trophy for ‘Junior Lamb Runner Up’.

Funds raised this year will go towards upgrading the school hall, starting with the well overdue toilet upgrade.

Thank you all for your generous support!
