Our annual football exchange against St Bernard's College from Lower Hutt was held on Wednesday 10th August at Haruatai Park in glorious winter sunshine.

The day started with a whakatau from Matua T who welcomed our guests on behalf of our College. After our welcome a hard faught game ensued over the next 90 mins. Otaki College rattled Saint Bernard's with two quick goals in the first half, unfortunately Saint Bernard's managed to regain the lead early in the second half and with our boys tiring, a quick couple of goals just before full time saw a full time score of 5 - 2.

After our game we invited the boys and staff from Saint Bernard's to join us for refreshments. Again a wonderful day of sport was had by both Colleges, a fabulous tradition. Thank you to Joseph Te Wiata who again coached our boys, Matua T for our whakatau and of course to Saint Bernards for providing such an awesome opportunity for our boys.
