Junior Town vs Country Rugby League

Our junior boys had a wee Town vs Country warm up game last Thursday giving them important field time prior to the Coast of Origin game against Haeata Community Campus this week.

It was a tight game with it only being 6 tries to 5, the green team slightly edging out the blue team. Some fantastic skills on show and a lot of passion on the field, is great to see our students out on the sports field again. We will look at having some more Town vs Country fixtures for our league players, keep an eye on the notices!

Don't miss the Coast of Origin game on Thursday!

West Coast Secondary School Senior Boys Basketball Results

GHS hosted the Senior Boys Basketball Tournament on Tuesday at the Westland Rec Centre, we had teams from Buller HS, Westland HS and two from John Paul II all getting 4 games under their belts in the action packed day.

The competition did not disappoint with some close games across the board, players from every school leaving everything on the court. See below for the results table. 1st/2nd place was decided in the last game of the day between GHS and JPII Bishops with JPII just taking the win by 3 points.
