We have had a huge number of records broken and that's so great to see. Some records were broken twice, first being at school and then again when competing for the school at SCPPSSA or Aoraki Swimming events. Well done to the following students:
Year 7 Girls
Year 8 Boys
Year 8 Girls
Year 9 Girls
Year 10 Boys
Year 11 Boys
School Cross Country Results
Well done to all students who finished the Cross Country and those that really got into the colour run at the end.
Well done to Sam Guerin who has made the U18 Hockey team for South Canterbury and will be playing in the tournament in Pukekohe during the first week of the next school holidays. Good luck Sam.
Karma Gyeltshen is a part of the Geraldine Men's First Division Football team.
The seniors had their Chatham Cup 1st round game last weekend. They travelled to Wanaka to play Wanaka who are a premier team that play in the premier competition in Dunedin. Geraldine went down hoping to be competitive and scored 2 early goals. The Wanaka team had underestimated their capabilities and with 5 minutes remaining, managed to draw even and then scored the deciding goal in the last minutes of the game. The final score was 2-3. Coach Shaun Stack said Karma was the player of the day and was probably the best player on the pitch out of both teams. Even after having the flu all week, Karma still gave it 100%. It was a game in which Karma really showed his class. Great work Karma.
Also in this team is ex GHS student James Stack.
Our annual Quad Tournaments are coming up in the coming weeks.
Good luck to all our students competing in these tournaments. We send Football, Netball and Rugby teams to these tournaments.
This Saturday is the Geraldine Rugby Football Clubs Club Day. All of our teams are playing at the Rugby Football grounds. If you are able, head down and support all our students playing and watch some great Rugby.
The draw is on the Rugby SC webpage - http://www.scrfu.co.nz/#
Also keep and eye out on the Geraldine Rugby Football facebook page for times.
Good luck to all teams.
