Olympic Day at Ohaeawai School

Last Friday we had a whole school Olympic afternoon. Room 7 and 9 organised all kinds of fun Olympic games we could choose to do. One of my favourites was the equestrian event. We used hockey sticks for horses and had to race down the track! Team Maunga will be putting together a movie to share all the activities with you. Keep an eye on our blog for it.

At the end of the day we had our school Olympic ceremony. Three kids from Team Maunga won sportsmanship prizes, Tanner, Teziah, and Ngarino. They showed all our school values we are so proud of them!

We also had medal winners for overall points.
Joel (Room 4) won Bronze, Cody (Room 6) won Silver, and Pauline (Room 5) won GOLD!
Team Maunga really enjoyed the day and can't wait for you to see our photos.
