Athletics was an opportunity to dress up in waka colours, have a go at different events and cheer each other on. Points were given for participation and for top placings in each age grouping. The winner of "best dressed waka" was Te Matau a Maui. The overall winning waka on the day was Haunui, who also won the team relay. Our top competitors went to the inter-school King Country competition where Karma Abraham got First in High Jump, Third in 800m and Third in Long Jump in her age group. Phyllis Bowler got third in Shot Put, and Cruso Nepia-Ford got first in 300m. Congratulations!
