Animal Diaries are available from school or the website above. A reminder that there are seperate diaries for many of the animals and special Group Day Diaries for rabbits and raised chicks. The Pet Profiles are for those entering the general Pet Section. All pet diaries and profiles need to be completed and returned to school by Friday 16th October.
For any new families to our school wanting more information please contact your class teacher, Renee Jope or Mike Wilson at the school.
Indoor exhibits can be brought to school on Monday 19th October and must be in by 12:40p.m. the following Tuesday. The hall will then be closed for afternoon judging.
Students, I hope you are rearing and training your pets for the big day! It would be great if lots of you could bring chickens, hens (last year’s chickens!), dogs, rabbits, lambs, goats, horses and anything other suitable pets you might have.
A reminder that Calves and Lambs need to be born after 1st August. Check out the website www.calfclub.co.nz for some great tips on rearing, grooming and training your lamb/calf. This will help you to keep track of what you need to do to make sure that your animal is on top form for show day! A reminder that calves will not be coming in to school and will be judged as an open class based on completed diaries.
Group Day will take place on Friday 30th October in Rai Valley. We like to encourage our students to enter this traditional Marlborough event either with indoor exhibits or outdoor pets. It is open to winners over various sections from Years 1 – 8. Please check the schedule for entries marked with a hash (#)
Please also check future newsletter, the school website and phone app for key information regarding Pet Day, which will be added to as we go.
