Jump Jam

On Wednesday 28th June we took 2 teams into the Sport Canterbury Jump Jam Competition. Both teams performed really well on stage. Unfortunately neither team made the final but it was a very even competition. Thank you so much to the students who coached these 2 teams and to the students who competed. Well done - you all did so well.

SISS Junior Netball Team

In the first week of the holidays our Junior combined Netball team competed in the Junior SISS Netball Tournament in Christchurch. This team, which included students from Year 9 and 10, went through pool play undefeated. 

They played Buller in the quarter final which they won. Semi final time came but so did the hail and snow. They did extremely well considering the conditions and won their semi final against Ellesmere. The final got moved inside as the weather didn't improve. The final was goal for goal against Verdon until the last minute, when Verdon got the turnover and won the final.

This team should be super proud as second place is an amazing achievement. Thanks also to the support team who were there over the 3 days.

Rugby League
