Our Parakiwai Road Cross Country

Cross Country last week was amazing, the sun was out with a little breeze favouring the race. Te Mahia School students all assembled in Miss Grover's paddock up Parakiwai Road.

The track consisted of the tamariki running around the paddock, continuing their run around the gully track. The gully track included running the fence line looking out to the Brown's and Miss O'B's house. Down a muddy slope through pine trees, across a little creek and back up along the fence line by Trixie's house.

What was impressive was the support the children had for each other, encouraging one another to persevere and carry on running through fatigue and exhaustion. Ka mau te wehi tamariki!!

A big thank you to parents and helpers who were positioned around the gully track keeping an eye on our tamariki as they ran the Cross country course. The turnout from parents and whanau to support our tamariki was magnificent, hope to see this support continue for future events.
