Oakura School Bowls them Over!

Published August 02, 2013

The proud bowlers from Oakura School had an excellent time.

On Thursday 4th July, 20 Oakura School students travelled to Okato to compete in the annual indoor bowls tournament.

Each year members from the Oakura Bowling Club work with our year 7 and 8 students to teach them indoor bowls and they select five teams to compete in this tournament.

Congratulations to Oakura team 5 (Kara Wells, Mark Huitema, Finn van Bergen and Matthew Whittaker) who won second place and Oakura team 4 (Hayden Benton, Jason Bond, Blair Walker and Kaia Mead) who came in third place. Also, congratulations to Juliet Squatriti who won $10 for her team in the $10 bowling challenge.

A big thank you to Zena, Rex, Rod, Mike and Val from the Oakura Indoor Bowling Club, who helped the teams prepare for the tournament and helped score on the day.
