Pet Day

We were pleased to have such wonderful weather for our Pet Day today. The day started with judging of our lambs, dogs, goats and rabbit. A huge thank you to the judges who took time to chat to each pet owner about their pet. 

Gaynor Finch from Clutha Vets also came and talked to the children about animal health.

The children had many interesting displays to show their parents and Grandparents including scenic trays, animal art, pet projects and a photography competition. In the afternoon we held our annual Agri-challenge where the children worked co-operatively on many challenging tasks.. The sun continued to shine and the children and pets behaved outstandingly. Well done to all involved.

Pet Day Sheep Art

We have been very busy at Waitahuna School preparing for Pet Day.  The children have been using their pets as inspiration for their Art, writing and reading.  We thought you might like a look at our Art work and also our Home-Challenge 'A pet made from recycled products'.  As you can see we have some very creative children at Waitahuna.
