Ki O Rahi Tournament 2015

Tuesday saw two teams travel to Putaruru to take part in the annual Raukawa Ki O Rahi Tournament, this a is a busy time at school -  lunchtime Athletics and lots of paperwork to be done  meant there was very little time to practice. Luckily KC the Ki O Rajhi expert, came in and gave the teams a training session last Friday - so we went, optimistic we would do ok. 
11 teams took part and some great sporting skills were evident in both teams,  they  made the semi finals,  the Year 7 team  was placed 4th overall and the Year 8 Team ( both teams featured many Room 10's past and present) played the top points scorers Putaruru 1 in the final.

After a great game  Tokoroa 1 emerged the clear winners 22-11,  and  the Nga Taonga Takaro Trophy returned to Tokoroa Intermediate for the 5th year in a row. . 

A big thanks to KC Maaka from Raukawa for introducing this traditional Maori  game to our school,  and to Hamish Allen for his expertise in managing the #1 team (yet again!)

The Winning Team
