Awakeri School

Athletic Sports 2019

Matiu Te Maipi sets a new high jump record in the 10 year olds. James Shailler and teacher aide Brenda Looney before the start of the 1500 metres race.
Jayda Smith is closely followed by Kendall McKane in the girls 1500m. James finishes his long run. He is also finishing his days at our school this week. Good luck back at Otorohanga.
Danielle Bach-Christensen takes the win in the girls 1500. Not far behind are Kendall McKane and Ani Doherty. Dylan McCormick watches his vortex throw soar into the sky. Londie Rika of Whakatane High School supervises. We were lucky to have a whole lot of WHS students come to help for the day.
Bailey Le Prou and Joseph Spalding battle it out on the boys 1500m. Joseph eventually took first place. Josh Jennings wins the 5 - 7 year old boys 1500 metres.
The track day started with the 800 m race. Astrid Smith leads out the 5 - 7 year olds. Danielle, leads from Aramia and Kendall in the 8 - 13 years girls race.
Sophie Growden powers around the 400m track, with Phoebe in hot pursuit. Love that Kowhai costume Sophie! Mr Fitz has come back to watch the running. He is talking to Mr Grindrod.
There is a big turn out of parents and grandparents to enjoy the day. Rimu colours in the lead!
There were 50 m sprints for the 5 and 6 year olds, as well as 80 m. Everyone stayed in their lanes very well.
Everyone watches closely as Jon Tiwha-Smith (obscured by the Tawa flag) races towards the line in the 200m. The house areas have shade and sun, and noise and colour, flags waving, chanting...
A very close finish in the 200m Chloee Munn breaks a record with her 200m run.
Odin Herrick and Jon had a great challenge in the 12 year old boys 100m. Sophie leaves the other 12 yr olds in her wake, even though they are fast too!
Zaena beat Chloee in the 100m. Now it's the start of the relay. Mr Hawkes, in his last athletic sports, talks to the first runners. Kim Reid is running for the teachers team. There is also a parents team and the four houses. Phoebe, Kendall, Ollie and Natasha start for their houses.
The finish: Jon, Soph, Odin (obscured), Cam (parents), Joseph, Mr Mac (teachers). Well done Rata! Now it's prize giving. Mr Mac shakes Ollie Peat's hand. Our two organisers Miss CT and Mrs Howard are on the microphone.
The crowd under the trees watching the prize giving. It was a great two days of sports.
