Ki-o-rahi kids give their all
A hard fought battle by more than 300 pupils ended with Strathmore School on top at the Raukawa Year 5 and 6 Ki-o-rahi Tournament.
The event, held at the South Waikato Memorial Sports Ground Oval, featured 14 teams from Tokoroa and Putaruru.
This is the first time Tokoroa and Putaruru teams have come together on the same ground.
This meant there was no surprise in the semi- final with Putaruru Primary versus Cargill and Strathmore Primary versus Te Wharekura O Te Kaokaoroa O Patetere in the other.
Cargill School played for the first time in the tournament and fought well to make the final against Strathmore.
In the end Strathmore came out on top with a score of 21-11.
