Group day cuties

Despite the grey morning, the children gathered at Matatoki School were in good spirits as they put their calf club pets through their paces. They were taking part in the calf club group day for the Ohinemuri cluster of schools. Calves, goats and lambs of all sizes and colours were tethered around the school field, waiting for their turn to show how nicely they could take a stroll around the pen. ALICE PARMINTER popped in to watch them promenade.
