House Points

In the highly contested House competition, students and staff can earn points for their House by competing in the run or walk. Points are given based on the top 3 finishers in each age group as well as the best 3 person and 6 person finishers from each house in the run, as well as house spirit and tidiness of areas.

It was a tight race between houses this year but coming out on top – just – was Ōpaoa with 391 points. Go Ōpaoa! Close behind in second place was Wairau with 382 points. And tied for third was Awatere and Kaituna with 308 points.

Congratulations to all our competitors and thanks to everybody else who participated and supported our rangatahi on the day.
