It was wonderful to welcome Roy and Jenny Ramble back to Goldfield and here all their news about Buttercup. Buttercup and her baby have 2 people looking after them. Her carers take her and her baby out to the fields to safely eat fresh grass and swim in the water. If you would like to find out more about their visit please click Roy & Jenny Assembly
Look how much 'Buttercup' has grown!
Doesn't she look happy, heathly and very grown up!
Roy is collecting Buttercup's milk.
3 buckets of creamy fresh milk for everyone to enjoy. Buttercup, how clever you are!
During the day Buttercup enjoys making friends with the wildlife whilst relaxing in the sun
Thank you Goldfield I am so happy here!
We love Buttercup's milk!

Announcing the latest Global Harvest News
Your wonderful colouring sheets were sent to the AOG School in India and they have sent these photographs back to us of the children holding them!
Mrs Stevens randomly picks out a colouring sheet from the basket of entries during celebration assembly and the official name for the water buffalo is .....
Thank you all for your amazing colouring sheets and ideas for names. Your kind donations have raised over £120. We will continue to raise money for this appeal until we have enough to buy a water buffalo. How wonderful it is to know that when we reach the target amount we know that the buffalo will be called 'Buttercup'!
During our Harvest Assembly Mrs Sladden launched a very special appeal to raise funds to buy a water buffalo for a school in India.
Roy and Jenny Ramble visited Goldfield and talked to the children about their school the 'Assembly of God Church School' in Rupaidiha, India, residential boys and girls homes, women's unit and health clinic.
A water buffalo would provide fresh milk for the women and children who stay at the school.
As well as the milk the manure is recycled to produce bio gas which can be used for cooking.
If you would like to support our Global Havest Water Buffalo Appeal simply colour in the water buffalo picture as neatly as you can and think of a name for the buffalo. Please attach your donation to the picture and return your entry to school by 9.00 am on Friday 26th October 2012. All entries will be placed in a lucky dip and the winner will be pulled out. The winning sheet will officially name the water buffalo and all of the pictures will be sent to the AOG School for the children to look at and enjoy.
We hope this project will enable us to build strong links with the children at the AOG School and we can all enjoy a fantastic learning experience with photographs, news and updates of our water buffalo.
