Five Suffolk Schools to Battle for School of the Year Title - 10 April 2017

The five semi-finalists for Suffolk School of the Year will meet at Trinity Park on 9thMay. The competition has seen children aged between 8-11 years, from schools across Suffolk, competing to be named the Suffolk Farming School of the Year.

 

Schoolchildren were asked to build a model of the ‘tractor of the future’ from recyclable materials, which saw over 20 schools enter the competition. The five semi-finalists, which will be decided this week, will take part in a day of activities including arts, cookery and academic workshops, hosted by Cook with Me Kids. They will meet a farmer from Hillfarm Oils who will talk them through the process of turning rapeseed into oil and will have the chance to see the latest in farm machinery from Tuckwells, including a forage harvester.

 

The final will take place on the second day of the Suffolk Show on 1stJune, where three schools will give an eight-minute presentation or performance, incorporating everything they have learned throughout the competition.
