Hello / Kia Ora
Well done to all the students who participated in our annual Athletics Day against Whenuakite School. Highest scoring seniors were Liam Parry, Liam McQueen, Jett Valdez Olivet and Antonio Rupeti Anderson with 18 points, and highest scoring junior was Leon Melde with the maximum 21 points. We have retained the shield with a one point difference. Congratulations everyone. We really are the little school that CAN.
