BIBLE

SHOWDAY
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 intending to go to Central Day will need to put their name forward to Peggy at showday. Any enquiries phone Peggy 439 0457 or Carolyn 439 4998
