Take your marks, starting gun fires, SPLASH. Over 120 students hit the water last week to have some fun and compete in the Annual School Swimming Sports. The sun made an appearance for most of the day with all of the races going ahead. Students splashed, glided, kicked and fought from end to end gaining house points and satisfaction.The biggest of the races was the 1L Freestyle which had over 20 competitors in each of the heats.
The strongest house this year was Tama-nui-te-rā (yellow) followed by Tāne Mahuta (green) and Ruaumoko. The highlight of the day was the Student Leaders versus Staff Relay race which wrapped up the day up. Not to name names, but the Staff Team took the title due to a certain house recycling a team member during the race! The full list of Junior, Intermediate and Senior Champions will be available online very soon. Congratulations to all of the winners and competitors for making it such an enjoyable day. A special thank you to all of that staff and students leaders that made the day a huge success!
Tama-nui-te-rā (Yellow): 115
Tāne Mahuta (Green): 91
