On Friday 18th August we squared up against Te Mata School in the Rex Graham Cup.
For those of you who are new to the Bay, the Rex Graham cup is a long running tradition (since 1991) where the two schools compete in Rugby, Netball, Hockey and Football.
Over the years HNPS has held an edge, but the last three years has seen Te Mata School come out on top. The Hastings Sports park was awash with supporters for what turned out to be a glorious spring day.
Our kids played their socks off, but unfortunately it was only the hockey team who came up trumps with a convincing 4-1 victory. Netball, Football and Rugby toiled hard, but were outplayed on the day.
The exciting thing moving forward in this event is that many of our children were Year 4 and 5's so will still be part of the
Rex Graham cup next year.
A huge thank you to the coaches, supporters and particularly our children who gave their best and showed plenty of character. You can't ask for any more than that.
