Congratulations to Legacy Katene and Tawera Duff who have made the King Country Under 57kg Rugby Team.  Well done guys!

Amazing Results for our Ripper Rugby Team who made it to the Waikato Championships. To get to this even that had to beat 24 teams across Taupo to qualify. At the completion in Hamilton they versed teams who had achieved a similar result, beating their local region to qualify. On Wednesday 24th of June our team versed 16 teams from the Thames Valley, Taumaranui, Waikato and King Country areas in four pools. Our team qualified 2nd from our pool and went on to win their game in the quarter finals and then won again in the semi finals to earn a place in the final against Nawton Primary in Hamilton. The game was a fierce competition where our students fought to the end, sadly losing 4-7.
