Tai Tamariki Atawhai | Te Houtaewa Challenge
Over the past months, Papa Vince has set personal chanllenges for our boys whether that be arriving at school on time or being ready early in the morning for swimming practices at the Kaitaia Pools.
A few weeks back our Papa Vince supported Ellazae, Rhaines, Nesta, Manny & Kruz to train for and compete in the Te Houtaewa Marathon along Te Oneroa-a-Tohe and finished 2nd for the replay teams with a time of 4 hours and 59 minutes.
Russell Cantlay, Chair of Te Houtaewa Challenge contacted us to say some of the competitors wanted to gift their winnings to a charitable trust and the race committee had chosen us. We are so surprised by this gesture and fortunate that the boys were able to collect the koha for the Trust and once again be acknowledged for their efforts. Thank you Te Houtaewa Race Organising Team! And Kia Ora to our Tai Tamariki Atawhai group for rising to the challenge.
