Thursday night our Yr 7-8 basketball team won their grade in a very close final - congratulations! They’ve had a great season.
We are big believers in our tamariki being active and having a go at different sports! In terms of school teams, these can only happen with parent support as coaches.
We want to give a particular shout-out to Nicole Lowery who has coached both netball and (two!) basketball teams this winter season. Nicole, we really appreciate the amazing mahi you do with our kids - they have become better athletes thanks to your dedicated coaching. Ngā mihi, Nicole.
With summer sports approaching there are more sports available for kids to play but these will need parent coaches. This is not something that teachers are in a position to do, so if we cannot find a coach the team will not be able to be entered. There are lots of benefits to coaching - getting to know your child’s friends, seeing kids grow, and meeting other parents - but on top of this, we will pay your child’s sports fee if you coach their team as a way of thanking you for your mahi. Please chat to Mrs Pemberton if you can coach.
