Survey from Level 3 PE – Your feedback would be greatly appreciated

“Our Level 3 PE class is busy examining the implications COVID19 has had on the sport in NZ and the impact this has/will have on Young Amateur Athletes in NZ. Young amateur athletes can be considered high school students between the ages of 12 – 18 who participate in sporting events/clubs in which participants engage largely or entirely without getting paid.” Survey Link

Staff vs Students Dodgeball

WOW! What a turn out at the staff vs students dodgeball. Heaps of people on the court across all year groups, and boy did some players have a cannon of an arm! Excellent to see so much involvement from students and staff, we love finishing the week on a high with some friendly interhouse competition.

Kiri Russell has been on the camera again taking some great snaps of the action – thank you!

Make sure you come along this week for the next installment of BENCHBALL (10 v 10)
