Sports News

Well done to Pippa Raleigh (Year 9) who won the Junior Triple Jump at the Wellington Regional Athletics.On Thursday our Equestrian competed at the Nga Tawa event. Although the team didn’t place there were many encouraging clear rounds with new combinations.

We were able to complete our Swimming Sports on a lovely Wairarapa day with warm temperatures. It was a relief to be able to hold this event after the serial postponement of both our Athletics and Swimming. These are both community events with our swimming starts shining as well as mass participation by all girls in the non-championship events.

Hockey Development Programme

Our successful Hockey Development Programme is continuing for Year 9-13 girls playing in the 1st XI and 2nd XI teams.  The programme runs throughout the season.  This year both our 1st XI and 2nd XI Hockey teams will attend National Tournaments.  Our Hockey Development Programme will  set our teams in good stead for the upcoming fixtures and tournaments this seasons.
