On Monday, May 5th representatives from the New Zealand Warriors, New Zealand Rugby League and Wellington Rugby League visited Ōtaki College to kick-off the Leadership through League programme being participated in by the Year 12 Physical Education students. 
During the five week programme the students will travel to Ōtaki Primary, Waitohu Primary and Te Kura o Te Wakatupuranga Rua Mano, coaching the primary aged students mini-module rugby league. The programme culminates with a festival tournament organised by the Year 12 Physical Education students. Friends and whanau of Ōtaki College and the participating schools are invited to the festival tournament day on Thursday, June 6th. "Working with Daniel Riggs and his Year 12 Physical Education class this year was a fantastic experience. The students showed maturity beyond their years through their commitment to the programme; organisation of the festival and flexibility when coaching the younger children. I believe that Daniel and his students represented Otaki College in such a way that the school should be very proud of their achievements and their extraordinary demonstration of pride and responsibility.”
