Athletics Day 2019

On Wednesday, 13 February Rutherford College took to the field for another successful athletics day. The whole school arrived to sunshine and positive vibes for the fun day ahead.

The day began with the Haka competition between the houses and then a whole school Haka. The performances put on made it a hard task for the judges to decide the winner but it was Ruaumoko who took the winning points, followed closely behind by Tama-nui-te-ra and then Tane Mahuta.

Next up was the judging of the banner competition for each tutor group. There were joint winners for this competition with 12PW and 12WI winning the free pizza lunch and 25 points each for their houses.

The day continued as the students hit the track or field for their events. There was a great level of participation and enthusiasm around the whole school. The students really got involved in winning points for their houses and getting their fellow house mates motivated.

Overall the performances and determination by the students was great. The winners of the overall house points was a very tight competition but it was Tama-nui-te-ra who got the win.
1st place  Tama-nui-te-ra
2nd place  Ruaumoko
3rd place  Tane Mahuta

A massive congratulations to all the students who competed in an event, representing their house and creating a great vibe for the day. Also a huge thank you to all the staff and student leaders who helped in the organising and running of the day. It wouldn’t have been so successful without all the help and support.
