Term 1 sports update

In Softball a few weeks ago our teams performed with excellence – our Y7 boys team came 3rd, Y8 boys team came second, it was unfortunate that our girls team did not place in the top 3. Thank you to Mr Williams, Whaea Terina and Mrs Laing for coaching the team, a big thank you to the Green Bay Boys senior Softball team for umpiring on the day, it was a great success.

We took a small team down to the Western Zone swimming day last week. We did well to win some of the heats but did not make final placings in the finals. Congratulations to Ciel, Kyrehn, Dashon, Mary, Linkin, Rory, May, Zayna, Stacey, Thanet, Moana, Ayziah and Mathius who were respect, responsible and engaged for this zone day and represented us with excellence.

During fitness times we have been running an orienteering course for all students to have a go, this has been great to see the competition is fierce with map reading skills essential and fitness endurance high. Great fun and learning at the same time!

Next term we have football, rugby, cross country, turbo touch, netball, and hockey coming up. If you are able to assist with coaching before, during or afterschool please email our sports co-ordinator Mr Tasi – tasit@kelstonint.school.nz
