Sunday 4th April - Term 1 Week 8

Top Schools is an annual Waikato Schools event that is hosted by Te Kowhai school and is competed amongst Primary & Full Primary Schools.

20 schools enter the event (10 Year 5/ 6 teams and 10 Year 7/ 8 teams). The competition is based on the old “Top Town” regional events that use to be aired on TV during the 80s & 90s.

Teams compete in 10 events with 12 minutes to complete various tasks for each game. They are all very different and points can be accumulated by:

  • How much water or sand can be filled up in a certain type of container.

  • How much distance can be made as a team within the time given.

  • How many objects can be caught in the time given.

  • Sportsmanship & fairplay attitude

  • Working as a team.

  • Positive attitude from both the team and their supporters.

Top Schools has been running for the past 14 years and our Te Rapa Primary School Year 7/8 teams have now won it for the 11th time. A massive accomplishment for all students in our school, past and present, who have competed in this event.

Top School Game winners in: 2006, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2012, 2013, 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018 and 2019
