ACHIEVEMENTS / NOTICES:

18 MARCH REGIONAL WAKA AMA AWARD WINNER TRINITY RAKENA:

 

Thank you for your support of Trinity to get to Regionals last week and Waka Ama Nationals this week.

At Regionals Trinity competed in the J16 girls W1 250m sprint race and placed third.

  • Her coach nominated her and 2 other boys for the #train like a king award. Sponsored by Tupuria King for a paddler committed to training.
  • The nominations were read out and the crowd then voted with their claps and cheers for the paddler they felt deserved the award.
  • Trinity was the recipient!
  • It was noted that she was the only student representing Kaikohe Christian School and that she has had to spend a lot of time training to improve – especially in her singles paddling.

Was a great day. Thanks again.

Ngā manaakitanga,

Renae Rakena
