Tis the season…..

IMG_0192It‘s officially SPRING TIME and if you are not from the rural regions, you may not be totally aware of the significance of this!
This is the time of the year that our rural primary schools have what we used to know as “Calf Club Days”
These days, some of the schools are still calling the day, Calf Club, others opt for things like “Country Life Day”, but whatever you like to call it, it usually means a fun and busy day for the kids, parents, grandparents and anyone else who just wants to get back to the “good old days” of rural school life!cute calfThis weekend, Saturday 21st September is going to be a busy, busy, busy one. So far we have Mauku School with their Country Life day starting at 9:00 a.m, Ramarama School‘s Calf Club day from 8:30 until 1:30 with stalls open from 9:30 a.m and Patumahoe School with their Calf Club Day from 9:00 a.m to 12:30 p.m.
If you were really keen to have a real country day out, there is the option to do the rounds of these schools and check out the stalls, pony rides, home baking, bouncy castles, BBQ lunches and more, before heading to the Steelers ITM Shield game at ECO Light Stadium, ready for the 2:35 p.m kick off.!
What more could you ask for? – and it’s ALL here in Franklin … bring it on!!
