Waiopehu Sports Exchange


Our warmest thanks to host school Waiopehu College for a fantastic day of sport.

The weather was perfect and the fields immaculate. There were many highlights from the day including the meticulous care of the presentation of fields and gymnasium; the positive and competitive spirit in which the games were played; a spine-chilling haka performed by the Waiopehu 1st XV; the music and dancing during lunch and the friendships that were made. Thank you to the volunteer referees and officials. A special acknowledgement to Mr Robinson (Principal of Waiopehu), Mikaela Greig (Head of Sport), student leaders, players and the hospitality team. Thank you to the Naenae Whanau Matua Te Teira Davis (Kaumatua), Anahera Waikato (Kaikaranga and Netball umpire), Josiah Tutagalevao (Basketball referee), Wendy Ellison (Netball Manager), Paula Andersen (Football Manager), Misha Kravcenko (1st XV Coach), DJ Basire & Hamish Moffat (Student Coach's of the Football Team) for supporting this event and making the day possible.
