"Preserving the legacy of our rural heritage for future generations."

It's On! This year the New Zealand Agricultural Show is proudly bringing the NZ Rural Games to our Canterbury community!

The 2022 Clash of the Colleges

This event includes relay races, team sports, and competition between academic colleges/high schools to determine who rules the schools. 

Sixty teams of seniors and juniors compete in teams of four across 25 modules – everything from milking a cow and plant washdown to wool classing and body condition scoring and paper-based modules covering seeds, weeds, and fertilisers. 

Oh, and it helps if you know how to throw a gumboot, cowpat, and an egg!

Come by yourself or with a group of other new students. Enjoy an afternoon of interactive fun!
