Y7/8 Fun Run – KidsCan Fundraiser

Our Cross Country Fun Run event, this year was ran in support of an amazing charity ‘Kids Can’. They regularly support our Kura and it was a real pleasure to be able to give back in some way. A special mention has to go out to Victor Orr who raised a large amount of funds in support of this event.

We could not of asked for better weather, blues skies and a cool breeze. The event set off with the  pupil’s covering the school perimeter as well as the football fields of Tiki Domain and along their way, facing a number of obstacles. The pupils had to face, ditches, climbing frames, a slip and slide, tractor tyres, car tyres and the Watties MUD PIT  (thanks Garth). All followed up with a sausage sizzle (thank you ladies). Lots of fun for watchers and runners.

Our winners were: Holly Schuster, Sylance Paki, Nevaeh Fiti, Rythm Taua-Glassie, Miriam Paki, Viktor Gee, Aamea Walding-King, Matatini Swanson, Amaia Gaubeka-Gil and Eruera Fraser

A neat event and well supported, so thank you to everybody involved. (Mr Watts)
