Congratulation to Ollie Lutton who has been named in Swimming New Zealand's national age group program for 2020–202, which sees him attend a national training camp at the end of January and will be monitored by Swimming New Zealand. Ollie will attend the nationals again in April next year.

Congratulations to Thomas Richards, Josh Tecofsky and Ethan Balon who competed in the South Island Junior Bowling Championships yesterday in Timaru. Each of them played six games of bowls during the day and St Bede’s College came away with lots of wins.
Thomas played the best bowls and finished 4th with Ethan and Josh finishing in the top ten. A great day was had by all mixing with all the other bowlers from around the South Island.
THE ATHLETE'S FOOT – Riccarton Mall:
A huge thank you to Simon from The Athlete's Foot in Riccarton Mall who have donated a mountain of sports gear to St Bede’s College for every boy to use.
Thank you also must go to our parents who support their shop, as every time you buy a pair of shoes The Athlete's Foot kindly donate $15.00 from each pair to the College. This is a partnership that has been going on for over five years and we really do appreciate the support that Simon and The Athlete's Foot give to St Bede’s College and look forward to our parents continuing to support this generous offer. A huge thank you to everyone for making this happen.
Congratulations to Byron Antal (fights for the Woolston Club), who competed and won on Saturday at the Canterbury Champs in the 92+kg Youth Male Title 2020.
Byron was also named in the 2021 Canterbury Boxing Team to go to the nationals in January which has always been the goal to go one better than his silver from last year’s nationals.
We wish Byron all the very best for the national championships next year. Well done Bryon.
