YOUNG FARMERS CLUB
Mrs Sinton & Mrs Gray.
YFC at Tandragee Junior High School
This popular club is open to all pupils in Years 9 & 10. We meet on a monthly basis in school. Throughout the year the YFC organises bun sales among other fundraisers for charity and YFC funds.
We work closely with the YFCU and once registration forms have been completed, pupils will receive a membership card which entitles them to many discounts.
A number of talks takes place within schools to include 'Field to Fork' which consists of employees from Dunbia Food Group and Tesco NI as well as a local farmer We welcome speakers from HSE NI (Farm Safety), AI Services (genetic breeding and fertility in livestock) and Rural Support (Mental Health and Rural Isolation on Farms)
We aim to organise an outing for members in the Spring term and in May pupils enjoy a trip to Balmoral Show.
YFC members recently ran a Tractor unscramble competition where members sold and distributed quiz sheets to friends and family. Well done to Ryan Davison who collected 3rd prize on behalf of his sister, Beth Sterritt who picked up a fruit basket as 2nd prize and to Victoria Grills who collected a box of cupcakes as 1st prize, won by her sister Abbie.
Thank you to all who took part!
