Our winning team!

Wow, fantastic news today from the ASB Football Park in St. Albans  – our Year 6 Rippa Rugby Team has won the Canterbury Tournament and therefore has qualified for the New Zealand Champs – the Rippa World Cup in Wellington on 13-15 September, where they take on another 19 teams from all around the country! They get free travel, accommodation, food and uniforms – all provided by the NZ Rugby Union.

We thank God for such an amazing achievement – the first by our school and the first by a school from outside the North Zone.

The team went through the Canterbury tournament today unbeaten with four wins and one draw. Thanks to the parents and Mr Frost who came to support us.

Two more wins and a close loss for Netballers

Our Year 9/10 Netball team did extremely well today and just missed out on a Semi-final place by one goal in the South Island Secondary Schools Junior Netball tournament.

After beating Lincoln High 26-11 and then Waimate 39-9 they had a heart-breaking loss to Ellesmere College 22-21 in the quarter-finals. Yesterday they beat Mt Hutt College 22-15 and St John Paul College 39-2 before losing to Hillmorton 25-11.

On Wednesday they fight out for 5th-8th place in a field of over 30 schools – all the best in the cold!
