Koru gamesThursday was another sunny day and a fantastic finale to our three-day tournament. At Ultimate, a song was composed about the joys of the sport, at volleyball, the team formed friendships with their opposition and joined forces to take on some Canterbury Representative Year 10 players. The girls' football team embraced the challenge of a penalty shootout while the boys continued to impress with their skill and positivity.

The ultimate team were awarded the top Sportsmanship Award and gifted with a goodie bag of sports merchandise. This kind of recognition surpasses any other win in our book and we are so proud of our tamariki for showing such positive values. All the children were exceptional for the duration of the tournament. They are such a pleasure to take away to sporting events and their efforts and attitudes have done themselves and our kura proud.
Those not in Koru games worked splendidly in the hub, they offered sensible and deep thinking ideas during 'Choice' sessions with Constable Ross and they stepped up to extra leadership duties due to 40 children being at Koru Games.
