Students can bring their
pets to school and compete in a number of categories. Lambs, calves, cats,
dogs and a great range of other pets will come to Pet Day. We
invite members of our community to be judges, and winners
receive lovely trophies & prize ribbons donated by local
families and businesses. Families are most welcome to attend.
We also host indoor exhibit competitions
with the Pet Day theme - sand saucers, miniature farms,
vege sculptures, gumboot "art", cooking or flower arranging!
Every class does something different, all students will be
involved and we try something new every year. Families get to
view all entries and the prizewinners during Pet Day.
In recent years, we have also held our
own Country Kids Challenge - team sports, with a rural theme, for
our senior students!

" We had
a wonderful morning on Wednesday. 97 Pets! Whew. It was
wonderful to see so many pets and the big crowd of supporters.
Thank you to everyone who supported their children in raising
and looking after their various pets. I think it’s a great thing
for children to have a pet and the daily responsibility of
looking after it. It teaches many life skills that we value. Our
thanks to all the wonderful judges and stewards, who did such a
thorough and difficult job. We appreciate the time you give to
this important job. The indoor exhibits were fantastic. The
children had worked hard on all their designs which showed their
imaginative skills and creativity. Thanks to our teachers also
for all the extra work that goes in to preparing these exhibits
for Pet Day. Results & photos are included in the
newsletter. Thanks also to our PTA for organising the cuppa and
BBQ. Your support is much appreciated. Unfortunately the weather
was against holding the ‘Country Kids’ Challenge’ competition,
so this will be run
later this term, most
likely at the Athletic Sports."
