Our school pets are part of our big school family. Toby and Poppy cats, Rhino our bird, and Milo our dog help make our school a special place. You'll find Poppy in our school office. Her job is to meet and greet visitors, welcome new students and their families and keep our school office ticking along. Toby looks after the library and playground. He has a special bean bag in the library and everyone knows that it belongs to him. Each day Toby walks our school and checks that we are all smiling and working hard. We enjoy sharing our learning with him. Rhino is our school budgie. He's very lucky and listens to us read in our library all day. Sometimes he squawks to say "good job" or "great reading".
Milo is the newest addition to our school pet family. He comes to school every day and joins in where he can. Milo is only a puppy and still learning the Papatoetoe East way. He is working with a special trainer to make sure that he has good manners and follows instructions. Milo is teaching us how to be safe around all dogs and is becoming a great school buddy. Check out Milos blog and see what he is up to.
We are very lucky to have school pets and we look after them very well. When you visit our school make sure that you say hello to them and if you're lucky you might get a big smile or slobbery kiss from one of them.
