A group of Ngatea Primary School kids spend their lunch break swapping Weetbix cards and talking rugby.

There’s an air of excitement in a quiet classroom at the back of Ngatea Primary School.

While most kids are running around outside during their lunch hour, a group of keen young collectors negotiate, sort and trade Weetbix All Blacks Stat Attack cards.

The cards, currently found in boxes of Weetbix, have fast become the latest playground currency in schools around the country.

Ngatea Primary School teacher Julie Loft said kids were encouraging parents and grandparents to buy more boxes of Weetbix than they needed so kids could collect the cards.
