Kapanui School - Mārānga ā Whiti - Rise and Shine

Tough Whanau

4 July 2019 - 4 July 2019

Tough Whanau - Waikanae Park, Thursday 4 July - 11.00am-12.45pm: Kapanui Tough Whanau is a teams based event (six children from different year groups - Yrs 3-8) run over numerous obstacles and challenges over a 1km course. Students work as a team to get through the event.


A change of clothes is important because the participants are going to get wet and muddy! A towel would also be useful on the day.


Please note: This is a participatory event, with an emphasis on teamwork and encouragement. There are no merit prizes for finishing first, second or third. Year 1 & 2 students will be doing a smaller version of the course.


A sausage sizzle will be available for $2 at the event.


There is no postponement day - if it is wet, the kids get wet (and muddy)!


Parents are more than welcome to come down and see the event.
