Fluffy friends

Despite the grey skies, the tamariki of the Hauraki Plains looked cheerful as they gathered at Ngatea Primary School on October 25 for Calf Club group day. Students from Ngatea Primary School, Kaihere School, Turua School and Waitakaruru School gathered with their calves, lambs and kids. They were put through their paces with leading, calling, and obstacle events, and judged on their rearing and handling. ALICE PARMINTER joined the herd.
