Help with Ag Day: The 30th October may seem a long way off but it takes many hands and a lot of preparation to make Ag Day our most successful fundraiser of the year. Over the last 2 years we have raised in excess of $45,000 from Ag Day. This money goes towards making Dairy Flat School a better place for our children. At this early stage we are keen to secure items (products or services) that we can put in the silent auction. We are also keen to secure animal ring sponsorships (you get the chance to advertise your business) and promises of donations that can help us reduce costs particularly for food and drinks (fizzy, water) for the internally run food stalls – hot chips, bacon & egg sandwich, sausage sizzle, lamb spit. If you own or work for a business that can help we would really appreciate your support. We are also keen for more volunteers, so if you can come to our next meeting, which will be held in early Term 3, please do so. Even if you cannot attend a meeting but you can help, please reach out to us at the PTA email:
Honey Fundraiser.  There are still a few pots of Manuka blend honey left. $40 for 1kg. Order form available in the School Office or contact Sarah Richardson:
