It was an intense week of practice examinations for Tereora College senior students last week but on Friday students were able to release all of that pressure at the school’s Athletics Day.

 

The annual athletics event featured four Anau (teams) competing for the school’s sports trophy.

The well-organised event, led by physical education teacher Adrian Hopwood, began with a march past involving each anau.

Last year’s Athletics Day champions Anau Maungaroa led the march around the tracks of the BCI Stadium where the event was held.

Principal Tania Morgan said organisers were pleased with the students’ level of participation and morale was positive throughout the day.

“Congratulations to all students who participated in our end of term anau event.

“And to the senior students who had just finished their end of year exams the day before - This was a great way to finish the term,” Morgan said.

Not only were students involved in a a number of track and field events but fun games such as tug-of-war proved a great way to get the students participating.

Anau Te Manga won overall first placing, followed by Maungaroa in second place, Te Kou in third and Ikurangi in fourth place.
