Ripping it up in Rippa Rugby

Last Friday 24 Te Mahia School tamariki were all full of energy as we attended the Wairoa Rippa Rugby Tournament. The sun was out but the grounds were wet and frosted a little. Had the odd complaints from children about cold feet but it didn't take long to warm up.

We had entered two teams into the tournament a Year 7 & 8 team and a year 3 & 4 team. Big ups to the year 5 and year 2 tamariki that stepped up to the challenge and played in these teams.

The year 3 & 4 tamariki had a lot of fun ripping the tags and chasing after opponents. As for the year 7 & 8's they were very competitive and a tough team to beat with their attacking offence and tight defence. I think the children learnt how to work together as a team and share the ball amongst team mates.

A big thank you to all the parents who helped transport tamariki to and from the tournament and again to those parents who stepped in as coaches on the day. A massive turnout from parents who supported Te Mahia School tamariki from the first hooter. We all enjoyed a successful day.
