Te Waipounamu U18 Wahine Rugby Development Camp ~ Isla McManus
Congratulations to Isla McManus who was selected in the Te Waipounamu U18 Wahine Rugby Development Camp, which ran in Timaru from Friday March 26th to Sunday March 28th. Maori female rugby players from across the South Island were selected to attend this, and the camp involved individual and group development for rugby skills, Maori culture and making connections between female Maori players. Organisers were very impressed wit the attitude and skill of all the participants.
Following a very successful Aoraki Athletics meet, it is very exciting to have 16 students represent Roncalli College to compete in the South Island Secondary Schools. This event will take place in Christchurch at Nga Puna Wai Sports Hub on Friday 9 and Saturday 10 April.
