It was a night of cel­e­bra­tion at Toko­roa High School’s inaugural sports coaches’ din­ner on Fri­day night.

Vol­un­teer coaches were treated to din­ner while be­ing waited on by their ath­letes.

‘ ‘ We wanted to hon­our our coaches for all of their hard work,’’ head of sport Carl Hakaria said. ‘‘Sport is a huge com­mit­ment in a ru­ral com­mu­nity.

‘ ‘ With­out these coaches our stu­dents would miss out.’’

A high­light of the evening was a pre­sen­ta­tion by guest speaker and ath­let­ics coach Chris Wil­liams.

Wil­liams praised the din­ner con­cept: ‘‘It is a great idea. We need to look af­ter our coaches.’’
