Tapuwae Tournament 2013

Posted by Go Waihi on 04/07/2013

As part of Matariki, or the Maori New Year Celebrations, the interschools Tapuwae Tournament was held at Waihi Central School yesterday. Teams from all the local schools had a great time in fine weather, and the competition was hard fought. Winner for the third year in a row was Waihi Central 1, who are Nga Whetu O Matariki - the stars of Matariki. See the photo of the proud team holding the coveted carved trophy.
