Lambs and ... Pet Day


SCHOOL COMMUNITY FOCUS

Lambs, Pet Day and Calf Club

When I shifted into town some years ago I thought that my days of Calf Club were over, history, kaput… Well, yes and no. The staff here at Moanataiari School, when I first started decided that we needed to have a Pet Day, the town equivalent of … you guessed it Calf Club. Over the last couple of years as we have modified the Pet Day programme we have looked at different ways to make the programme more interesting. This year we have decided to include lambs … (Oh yea!)

 









Lambs … what on earth were we thinking! Escapes into neighbouring farmer’s paddocks!

Regular feeding, grooming, training and baaing.

We were thinking that it’s a good thing to care for an animal. Animals can teach us so much and they are great memories.



Okay, all right... Let's bring on the lambs!

  1. I love these pictures of Feeding the Lambs especially the one where you are feeding them on a rainy day on the porch! I hope they were prizewinners :-)
