Pet Day

Today we celebrated Pet Day at Halcombe School.  It was awesome to see so many people getting involved with the different parts of the day and everyone had lots of fun. 

As well as making cupcakes or muffins and displaying our rural photos, some people brought their pets - everything from lambs to dogs to chooks. 

We also had an Agrikids Challenge that saw all four houses battling it out for first place.  Well done to Kauri who won this event!

Thank you to all the teachers and parents who helped make sure our day ran smoothly.  We were certainly very lucky with the weather.

Check out the photos!

  1. I really enjoyed Pet Day, because it was so cool seeing everybody's animals and muffins. The country kids challenge was also really fun to watch and I was proud that Totara never stopped cheering.

  2. I enjoyed pet day. It was awesome to see all the different pets at school. Agri kids was challenging. One thing our group had trouble with was the fadge race and hitting the duck. I liked drinking the coke and carrying the straw bayles, but the straw did cut your legs and left big red dots.

  11. I really enjoyed Pet Day too. All the animals were well behaved and the kids did a great job of controlling and looking after their animals. I enjoyed cooking 100's of sausages because everyone appreciated them. Finally, it was sooooo well organised! Well done.
