Pet Day 2012

We had a wonderful day at the Waitahuna School Pet Day.  Dogs and lambs were the most popular pets with goats and a cat also on parade.  We would like to thank Sam Hislop from ANZ, Val Fox  and Sue  Homer for their expertise in the judging ring. Tom Henderson our local Vet also spoke to the children about caring for their animals and why it is important to vacinate against disease.

This year we included an 'Agri-challenge' which saw teams competing at decorating a pavlova(incuding whipping the cream with a hand beater), then constructing an electric fence to hold a lamb, shooting possums with a nerf gun and a 'fadge race' to end the challenge.  The children then had a BBQ lunch kindly provided by the PTA - with pavlova for desert.
