Cricket Losses

Our Year 7/8 Boys’ team had an exciting game today against Beckenham and ended up 6 runs short of their total – well done to Beckenham. Our Year 5/6 Girls’ team lost by 14 runs to Sommerfield at school today.

Swimming Sports Results 2015

We had a super time at our Senior School Swimming Sports today at Wharenui. We had 15 records broken with some of them broken by more that 10 seconds – and that is over 50 metres. Oliver Graves broke four records and Hayley Buckley broke three records and gave Mr Buxton a lesson on how to swim. Full House results are not through yet but at the pool Rutherford had a big lead over Sheppard, Snell and Hillary in that order – with Relay results to be added.

Well done to all children who competed and gave of their best, whether in the Championship 50m races, one length 25m races or in the event for those still refining their swimming strokes.

Thanks to all the parents and supporters who came along to cheer on students. Thanks also to Kelly Davis for the photos.

Year 5-10 Triathlon

Well done to all competitors today in the Triathlon – what a super effort from you all and so wonderful to see everyone giving of their best. The results will be out later tonight. We tried to get some out this afternoon straight after the event but had one wee timing glitch, so our sincerest apologies for any incorrect results but we wanted to honour some of our winners in front of their peers and parents.

Thanks to God for super weather and keeping everyone safe. It was a delight to see about eight Mums having a go also. 20150220-_MG_9433 20150220-_MG_9468 20150220-_MG_9491
