Northland Area Schools Ki o Rahi Tournament 2019
“Providing aspirational goals was an important focus for Te Kura Taumata o Panguru as hosts for this year’s Northland Area Schools Association (NASA) sports event held in Whangarei.
It was fitting to then see students and kaiako aspiring to improve themselves on the Ki o Rahi fields, as they stepped out of their comfort zones playing and umpiring games and running the administration tent.
Congratulations to all those chosen to represent the Northland Area Schools Ki o Rahi team.
Ano te mihi nui ki Te Kura Taumata o Panguru, te mahi rangatira tēra!”
