Pet Day 2011

Wow! So exciting. Pet day was held yesterday, Friday, November 4th. 

We all brought an exceptional array of pets. There were rabbits, chooks, cats, dogs, lambs, goats and ponies. Turtles and snails arrived too! It was an outstanding day in the spring sunshine. Thanks to all our parents for the transportation of animals and their support. A popular category was the best dressed pet. We had dogs that were Super Heroes, Zumba champions, Cowboys, Fairies and Rugby stars!

Thanks to the National bank for their support, and for lending us one of their busy Rural Managers, Marcus Bousfield for the afternoon. There were some tricky decisions for him to make in the judging!

Excellent organisation from Ms White, Mrs Potter, Mrs MacPhee and Mrs Byers made the day a huge success. Great effort team! We can't wait for next year.



The Rockets made Sand Saucers in class on Thursday with Mrs O'Dowda. 
These were judged on Pet Day. Take a look!

How do you care for it?

Hello again Room 2 Rockets.

It looks as though you all had a wonderful time at the Pet Day 2011. I was very impressed with the range of pets I saw in the photos.

The other creations were amazing. Inventions, cupcakes, sandsaucers and cakes are very well presented.

Well done all of you. :)

Thanks so much for your comment!

We had such a wonderful day, the sun was shining and everyone was smiling! It was great to see some of the Rockets with rosettes rewarding their tremendous efforts.

We really appreciate you taking the time to write a comment and support our learning.

Hi Rockets.
I am soooo... impressed with the lovely video of your pet day. Your animals look like they had an amazing day. I especially like the dressed up pets. Your cupcakes look very scrummy! The sand saucers are very, very creative and pretty. You must have been so proud of yourselves. Miss Revell is so lucky to have such a wonderful class. We have our school gala next weekend, so I hope we have just as much fun.

Dear Room 2 Rockets

Pet day sounds fun!

How was it?

At home we have a pet cat.Its an outside cat. We easily lose our cat. Our cat is called Daxter.

The horse is the biggest pet of them all!

The video is pretty interesting.

You have a lot of different kinds of pets. What are some of their names?

All the pets are pretty cool!

I like the dog dressed as a fairy!

We feed our cat Daxter cat food and water but no milk.

You all must be responsible taking care of a pet.

Hi Rockets
You are so lucky to have a pet day. It looks like so much fun!
We haven't had a pet day at our school in a long time! I think because we have over 850 children at our school it might just be a little bit hectic!
I am sure not many of our children will have horses, cows or sheep.
Were all the animals good? Or do you have some funny stories to tell?
Mrs Laburn remembers making sand saucers when she went to school!!

Talk soon

Wow, your pet day looks amazing. It was great to see so many different animals.

Unfortunately we don't have pet day in our school. We haven't even got a green area as part of our playground.

Sometimes we do have chicks in school in the nursery classroom.

How long have you been having pet days? What if you don't have a pet at home?
