At the end of Term 2 and the start of Term 3, we had multiple Year 5-8 students compete in our Zone Winter Tournament in rugby, netball, football and hockey. A huge congratulations to all students that competed for demonstrating fantastic sportsmanship and teamwork on the day. A big thank you to all the parents and teachers that coached and supported our teams. We really appreciate you!

Our netball teams had a fantastic day out resulting in our two A teams progressing through to the Canterbury competition on Thursday 22nd of August. Our Senior A and Junior B team remained unbeaten throughout the tournament, which was a huge success. Our Junior A only lost one game and had a nerve wracking game against Prebbleton to take them through to Cantebury's. It was great to see all our Halswell kids demonstrating fantastic sportsmanship and netball skills out on the court.
Our three football teams had a great day out competing against a variety of different schools. The Year 7/8 A team had some tough games and came away with only one loss to Lincoln. These guys have made it through to Canterbury's as well, which is another incredible achievement and we wish them all the best. Our Year 5/6 and Year 7/8 B team played with grit and as a team, that showed a lot respect to the opposition.
Our rugby teams had some fierce competition at the Zone Tournament and muddy conditions for a tackle competition. They played with determination and great team skills to take down the opposition. Our Year 5/6 team placed 3rd which was a fantastic result. Well done to all.
Our hockey teams went out and gave it their all on competition day. For a lot of our Year 5/6 students this was a great opportunity to get out and involved in a hockey competition. They put up some fierce defence and great attack. Our Year 7/8 team took the field hard during the tournament. We had a strong defence and held our own in attack. We came out a stronger team!
