Calf Club-Pet Day is an action packed, fun day for families. Paparimu School is once again celebrating the time honoured tradition.

For years, Paparimu School children have had the opportunity to hand-rear a calf, lamb, kid, chicken or bring their beloved pet to school for a fun day of leading, calling (sometimes chasing!) and showcasing their animal.

This day is a vital experience for our kids as it celebrates and demonstrates New Zealand’s agricultural history and culture while bringing local communities together. Few schools still have the opportunity to enjoy this rural tradition so we love our whole community to get behind our local kids. Our day is not a major school fundraiser, so no need to feel like you will be 'fleeced' for your cash! The day is to celebrate and enjoy this rural tradition with our community.

All children are encouraged to rear an animal or bring a pet along and or complete a creative project. As part of class learning programmes, they also complete numerous indoor exhibits - last year's (2015) indoor exhibits were by far the highest quality so far!

Calf Club-Pet Day is designed to support students development through structured learning and engagement via hands–on agricultural based activities. There are Calf Club-Pet Day booklets and resources which include information on pet care and preparation and plenty of useful ideas that will be given out to and shared with students. It is very helpful if students regularly track and document the care and progress of their animal.

On the day, there will be indoor exhibits, creative projects on display, competitions, food and an assortment of activities for children and adults. This is an important event in our community and a part of our unique rural school curriculum - probably the most fun day of the whole year for the kids!

Visit our community and share in the fun with our families! A great country day out!
