Tough Guy and Gal Challenge

This year's tough guy and gal has moved to Kumeu Showgrounds rather than just down the road at Rautawhiri Park. If you would like to register your child to participate you can do so on this link.

The school supports any students attending the race but will not be responsible for students on the day. Parents will need to register and transport their child to the event.
Just remember to let your child's teacher and office know if they are attending.
