OPEN DAYS

In Weeks 8 and 9 we will be hosting our Open Days.  (24/25/26 June, 1/2/3 July). This gives us the opportunity to share all of the wonderful experiences that are on offer at Opunake High School including Whole Day courses and Faculty information. We will be combining our Junior Technology programme with our Open Days so the work that is completed in these classes will also be on display.

A highlight from our Open Days last year was the complimentary lunch provided by Mrs Cindy Dobbin and her team of student chefs beautifully served by the Year 7/8 students.

Manawatu College Sports Exchange 28-29 May

On May 28 Manawatu College arrived at Opunake High School, for our annual sports exchange. This is a great event that all students look forward to competing in. Over the 2 days there are many new friends made and old friendships rekindled.

This year we won 6 of 7 games and played these games with determination and grunt. The rugby drew an amazing crowd, and a nailbiting finish with Rawiri crossing the line to win the game in the last minute. The score was 14-15 to Opunake.

Hockey also came down to the crunch with only one goal seperating the score with Opunake coming out on top 1-0.
