Drury School is gear­ing up for its tra­di­tional Calf Club Day at the end of the month as chil­dren are busy rais­ing lambs, kids, chick­ens and calves. The event has been a tra­di­tion since the 1950s, and sees chil­dren bring their pets to school and feed them at lunch time and care for them through­out the day. They are then ex­pected to tell the judges how they cared for them. Stu­dents will also ex­hibit art and craft en­tries on the day which have been com­pleted at school. Friends of Drury School also run the gala and or­gan­ise events dur­ing the day as part of a ma­jor fundraiser for the year. These funds are used to pro­vide the many ex­tras in the school pro­gramme. The Drury School Calf Club Day is on Satur­day, Septem­ber 30 from 9am.
