A group of athletes will travel to the Gold Coast, Australia to play Kingaroy High School in a number of codes over the September holidays, as well as visiting Theme Parks and sight-seeing. Francine Vella, James Govan and Murray and Mal Thompson will accompany the group.
Our Cross Country runners continue to impress with Henri Gaudin and Rebecca Dalphin winning their events in the Co-Ed event.
Ben Deaker's performances in Diving saw him being named Captain of the NZ Secondary Schools' Diving Team, and he won 4 gold medals at the South Island Champs.
Summer Sports sign ups have seen good numbers of students signing up. Our Sports Council organised an entertaining Multi-sports event as part of Youth Week, and senior PE classes coached primary aged students at North East Valley Normal School this month.
