Celebrations take a rural turn
Students are soaking up the sun as the Southern Institute of Technology O week continues into day four.
The festivities have taken an agricultural turn today, with students trying their luck in a gumboot-throwing contest and braving a mechanical bull.
The annual talent quest also continues this afternoon, ahead of the final showdown tomorrow.
The orientation events, organised by the Nga Kete Matauranga Pounamu Charitable Trust, wrap up tomorrow with the Feast of Middle Earth, a free hangi for students and faculty.
