PCT Challenge at Melville Intermediate March 1st 2018
On Thursday 1st March, Te Rapa Primary School sent 10 students to compete in the 2018 Waikato
Regional PCT Competition.
The students were split evenly into 2 teams - Te Rapa Red and Te Rapa Blue. The competition was hosted by Melville Intermediate School where all the field activities were held. The swimming event, which was the last competition of the day, was held at the Gallagher Aquatic Centre.
48 schools competed in events such as the PCT (Physical Competency Test) course, the 20M car push, Strategy Thinking/ Problem Solving test and the swimming relays.
It was a tough competition with so many schools there, but the teams had lots of fun. Overall, Te Rapa Blue came 19th and Te Rapa Red placed 20th.
Both teams would like to thank the parent support with transport to and from the venue, as well as supervising and cheering the teams on.
Some thoughts about the day:
"I liked the Strategy Thinking/ Problem Solving activity because you had to
sometimes think outside the box and not over-complicate it.” - Tiare Parker
"My favourite part of the day was the car push because we kept improving our times the more we did it.” - Mya Pilcher
"I really enjoyed the physical challenges, especially the ones that got us competing against other schools and we ended up muddy and dirty!” - Oliver O’Connor
