 Yr 7&8 Rugby Taranaki Trophy 2022

Congratulations to our coastal team made up of players from Auroa, Opunake and Manaia schools.

Sounds like it was a close game against Oakura School - but a last minute try scored by Issac from Manaia School sealed the win!!

To our lot - Jethro, Nixin and Victor - good on you boys for getting into it!!

Netball 2022

Year 8 Netball: This team improved so much. Their last 3 games were amazing. They played so well as a team. I am so proud of them.

Basketball 2022

Well done to our Yr 7/8 Basketball team for making it to the B Grade finals. Auroa Lakers certainly brought their A game so we didn't come away with the win, but it was still a great game despite the loss.

Well done Opunake Primary 45'ers!! Also thanks Daniel Sefton Zachan for your top coaching and Opunake Basketball Association for all your hard work and making the competition possible.
