Rural schools cluster and show day

Fairhall takes part in the Marlborough rural schools cluster, which involves organising and participating in events with other rural schools in the region, such as cross country running, swimming sports and athletics. The school also maintains close links with the Marlborough Boys and Girls Agricultural Association.

We celebrate our rural character each year on Show Day, an opportunity for students to bring pets to school, have their gardening and craft skills judged, make a sculpture with their family and enjoy the lamb guzzling race, horse and pony displays, and the grand parade.

Fairhall School has won the Marlborough rural schools regional Group Day trophy in its year of inception – 1986 and then again in 2005, 2009, 2010, 2012 and 2013.

In 2016 our senior school has begun taking part in a series of sports, arts and cultural interactions with Tua Marina, Seddon, Rapaura, Ward, Riverlands and Wairau Valley schools. Our focus here is to develop strong and confident relationships with students prior to moving on to secondary school.
