The following boys have made it into South Canterbury Cricket Squads for their age group.

Year 8 team - Jackson Weir and Scott Robertson

Year 7 team - Jonty Sowden

Well done Boys.


Over the weekend of 3rd and 4th of March Emma Becroft competed in the Canterbury Children's Athletics Championships in Timaru. Possibly the toughest competition of the season, the children are allowed to enter a maximum of 4 events per day, with heats, semis and finals in the sprints, and 6 throws or jump efforts for the top 8 performers in the field events to determine the overall winners.

Emma had a great weekend, coming away with wins and placings in all 7 of her chosen events, and was the overall winner of the Grade 12 Championship. She has now been selected to represent Canterbury in the inter provincials which take place in Taranaki over Easter weekend.

Awesome effort Emma.


Lee Voigt did the Pass to Pub 36km Mountain Bike race on Sunday March 4th and placed 4th in the Under 15 Year category. Well done Lee.


Great results from the South Island Secondary Schools triathlon on Sunday 4th March in Oamaru. What is so incredible is their never give up attitude, even though they found the transition from one discipline to the other very challenging in a highly competitive environment.

Please note that this is the students first ever Triathlon. It was made up of ocean swimming 300m, cycling 12km and running 2.5km. Their first ever Duathlon included a 2km run, 12km cycle and another 2.5km run


Junior Boys U14 - Jonty Sowden - 48.46 and placed 4th, Ben Wyborn - 49.21 and placed 5th and Will Morrison - 52.29 and placed 6th.

These boys are only 11 -12 years old, so these are awesome results with great times.

Junior Girls U14 - Kristin Schoneveld - 49.59 and placed 9th.

 Another great time. Well done to you all.


Intermediate U16 - Khan Ashton - 40.17 and placed 1st

Junior Girls - Lydia Hanrahan - 49.53 and placed 3rd

Both were on the podium - great work!

It was an absolute pleasure to take these children away - they were great ambassadors for the school.

Well done to these students and Stu Wilcox for coaching them.
