Pet Day

What an awesome day we've had!  Congratulations to all those who brought pets today - we know that raising a pet is really hard work, and you all did very well.  There were some really cute dogs, calves and lambs (and pandas)!  Well done to those who received prizes.




The Country Kids Challenge was loads of fun too, and as usual, the competition was red hot.  Competing in a range of 'rural' challenges, the teams blitzed through the course in an epic race.  We found out that:

  • throwing a frisbee accurately is a wee bit hard in the wind.
  • bobbing for apples isn't as easy as it looks.
  • hay bales are heavy.
  • some people know how to use drench guns, and others don't.
  • some people weigh a lot and pushing them in a wheel barrow was hard.
  • getting your team to move 5 metres while standing in a wool fadge is pretty much impossible.



And check out this cool video taken from William's drone:
