Get inspired with the new Fieldays Educational Programme

Get inspired with the new Fieldays Educational Programme


Fieldays and New Zealand Young Farmers Association are excited to present a brand new program to the Fieldays 2014 calendar.

The Fieldays Educational Programme is designed to be a dynamic and enjoyable experience for students and teachers to learn more about new opportunities now available within the fast growing agricultural sector.

Being held at the Kaipaki Community Hall, a mere five-minute drive from Fieldays, the program will run through the morning of Friday 13th June, with a free breakfast provided.

The day will consist of a number of inspiring and educational workshops presented by our programme partners Dairy NZ, Beef + Lamb New Zealand, Vodafone, Hyundai New Zealand, the University Of Waikato and ANZ on a range of subjects such as goal setting and sustainable farming practises.

Getting behind this exciting new programme is ex netball great and Pinnacle Manager Bernice Mene. Bernice played for the Silver Ferns for 10 years and will be a guest speaker at this not to be missed event.

The event aims to increase the skill level of students looking at entering the agricultural sector, while providing opportunities for potential employees and employers to meet and interact.

Part of New Zealand Fieldays Society’s long term plan is to use the Fieldays event as a window into the agricultural sector and to showcase the array of opportunities out there for prospective students.

In addition to having the opportunity to gain extensive knowledge on the agricultural sector, those in attendance will also receive complimentary tickets to attend Fieldays 2014 and enjoy the remainder of their day there.

Fieldays is supported by Strategic Partners, ANZ and the University of Waikato on this initiative.
