Mount Biggs school wins big

The Tribune (NZ) - - SPORT -

While the Tur­bos lan­guish at the wrong end of the ITM Cup com­pe­ti­tion ta­ble, Manawatu’s Mt Biggs School has scored big.

Mt Biggs Pri­mary has won the lo­cal ITM Cup ‘We Love It Here’ con­test for col­lect­ing the most ITM Cup stick­ers given out at Tur­bos home games.

With a to­tal col­lec­tion of around 100 stick­ers adorn­ing their sticker chart, the small coun­try school has picked up the grand prize of a $10,000 work­ing bee.

Prin­ci­pal Raewyn Mar­shall says her pupils have been col­lect­ing the stick­ers for about five weeks, and the prize money has been ear­marked for a paved out­door area and raised gar­dens.

A rose gar­den and seat­ing area for the kids could also be on the cards. Raewyn says half of the money would be spent on build­ing ma­te­ri­als and the other half on labour.

The school’s cause was helped greatly by four ar­dent Tur­bos fans. The two pairs of broth­ers have al­ready won it a sack of Adi­das rugby balls.
