Waikaretu School - Striving for Excellence


Pet Day 


Pet Day is held yearly on the first Friday of Term Four. All students are encouraged to rear an animal (calf, lamb, kid or chicken) or bring a pet (no dogs). Indoor exhibits and art projects will be judged before the event and displayed on the day. 


Each year we have three fundraising events during Pet Day:

  • the much anticipated Fathers Cake Competition (fathers, grandfathers, family members, are encouraged to bake and decorate a cake which is then raffled off during Pet Day)
  • the library fundraiser (where you can select a book to purchase and donate to our school library)
  • the annual raffle. We ask for prize donations and send tickets home with students beforehand. Tickets may also be purchased at Pet Day.
