Sport takes centre stage
Tainui Full Primary School students Luther Murray and Hinewai Tata were two of the 200 students in the school’s production
which was performed to a warm reception. The two-hour long operetta, which was worked on for most of the term, followed the beginning of the Small Blacks Rugby Tournament, which saw teams from all around the world compete for championship glory. Countries involved in the production included Ireland, Japan, Russia, Scotland, Samoa, South Africa and Australia. The second half of the show rejoined the players 10 years later at the Senior World Festival Cup.
