Athletics Day 2023
March 3, 2023
The sun came out to help us celebrate our first Athletics Day in a couple of years on Thursday 2 March.
Congratulations to our winners on the day but a particular thank you to everybody who participated. There was a lot of colour, fun and laughter on the field, as well as some serious competition.
And great work Ōpaoa! House winners on the day with a strong representation in the age group champions as well. See below for the main event results.
