Calves, goats and lambs, this is a regular activity associated with Showday.
The animals will be found on the field across the road from the police
station. Teacher in charge is Mrs Vincent. Animals should arrive at 9.00am,
judging starts at 10am sharp. TB ear tags should be in all calves ears,
please attempt to comply with this law. You will need to carry a TB card
with you on the day. There will not be an obstacle course this year due
to lack of parental help. No child should sit down in the ring even if
their animal does (this would mean disqualification when competing at
Central Day). Please ensure your children have suitable footwear. Projects
need to be handed in to Mrs Vincent by Tuesday 29th October, if you do
not wish to do a project you will be required to go to class at normal
time to do classroom activities before tending to your animal. All those
