Day of family fun is back
It’s big, red and has found the perfect final resting place – at Pauatahanui School.
After introducing a red tractor as its annual Lamb & Calf Day logo in 2009, Pauatahanui School thought it appropriate that an actual tractor be on site.
Lamb & Calf Day will take place on November 6 from 10am till 2pm, rain or shine, at the school grounds.
Organising committee member Lee-Ann Duligall says the red tractor is steeped in history – from a farm in the Otaki Hills, to Whangahu, hauling boats.
‘‘This tractor now deservedly returns to a peaceful, relaxed rural life overlooking the beautiful Pauatahanui Inlet from the school grounds,’’ she says.
Ms Duligall says the event is always one the community looks forward to and supports. ‘‘It is a day about our children, family fun, great food, live entertainment, animals, homemade goodies and so much more.’’
The Robinson Sisters – from the Beat Girls – and local jazz band Casablanca will perform and new attractions include paintball, designer clothes and the Bledisloe and TriNations cups. Farmyard animals to see include a miniature pony, donkey, bunnies, pigs, goats, ducks and chickens and even a weta farm.
Field day: It’s all about the kids, animals, food and fun at Pauatahanui School’s Lamb & Calf Day on November 6. You can be guaranteed Paige Duligall and Jackson Kennedy, top, and Liam Dalton with lamb Gio, and Olivia Wooldridge with lamb Lady Baba, will be getting into the spirit of the occasion.
