Animals Available for LCCK Day

posted: Mon, September 14, 2020

Kaharoa community farmers have kindly offered to support our school’s LCCK Day by providing animals to families who may otherwise not have access to them or do not have space to keep them past LCCK Day.

Sarah Paterson, on behalf of the PTA, has kindly taken on the role to receive your requests for animals and to communicate with the farmers.

This is an offer of an animal only – all of the animal’s needs, e.g. food, shelter, land are to be provided by you. We have information books available on our website.

And here is how it works:

Calves – calving now

· Unregistered calves: $100 donation to the school. Calf is yours to keep.

Alternatively, if your child would like to raise a calf but cannot keep it beyond LCCK Day:

· Registered calves: $100 bond (fully refundable upon return of animal). These calves are to be returned to the farmer weaned.

Once we have a completed a list of those wishing to get a calf and received the bond payment, you will be informed about a date/time for calf collection.

Lambs – due early September

Lambs: $100 bond (bond fully refunded on return of weaned lamb). Lambs need to be docked, ringed and weaned before they are returned.

You will be informed when a lamb becomes available.

Kaharoa School PTA will organize a docking and ringing session with Vet Plus at school before LCCK Day free of charge.

All bonds to be held in trust by the school.

Sarah will collate a list of children wanting an animal. It will be on a first in, first served basis and it is possible that we may run out of animals.

Please contact Sarah Paterson on sarahpa@kaharoa.school.nz to add your name to the list or send her a text to 021 519551

Please include name, contact details and the type/number of animals required.
