Two weeks ago eight Year 8 students represented Muritai School at the national PCT Challenge (Physical Competency Test) at Petone Rec. This is an event organised by the New Zealand Police and provides an opportunity for students to take part in a series of physical tasks as a relay team. Xavier Manson, Freijah Hawes, Zara Costello and Cahon Holden took out first place in the competition.
This gained them entry to the National competition which was held at the Royal Police College on Saturday.
This was a huge step and involved some grueling tasks - including racing up flights of stairs while carrying anchovies in your mouth!!
Overall they placed 10th out of 24 teams!
Well done guys - we are very proud of you!
