Kia ora tātou. Ngā mihi nui.
Thank you to the parents, volunteers and staff who gave up their time to support our students over tournament week. Your contribution to our students made it possible for the teams to compete in their tournaments, and is greatly appreciated.
I was proud to visit our teams competing in national tournaments around the North Island last week. I was impressed with two things – the focussed and positive team cultures, and the support of parents and volunteers.
Over the last two years, the college has done a lot of work around the values and goals of our sports teams. We have introduced the TLC (Teamwork, Leadership, Character) programme led by Dr Ralph Pimms, a sports expert from USA and Sports Auckland. The evidence behind this programme is that it leads to increased participation, healthier and more well-rounded individuals, and ultimately improved results on the field, court, etc.
Last week I saw this in action. Our students played well as teams and showed determination to succeed on the field. I enjoyed seeing our young men and women compete so well and so positively.
The final results of our teams are as follows:
Boys Hockey Woolaston Cup
3rd Place (5 wins, 1 loss)
Girls Hockey Mary Clinton Cup
12th Place (1 win, 2 draws, 3 losses)
Boys Football Trident Trophy
6th Place (4 wins, 1 draw, 3 losses)
Girls Football Maurice Hulme Tournament
9th Place (6 wins, 2 losses)
17th Place (8 wins, 2 losses)
- Senior Open Team
- Junior Girls Team
- Junior Open Team
For Underwater Hockey, William Heaps was named ‘Male Player of the Tournament’. In addition, William Heaps, Alexander Duff and Jackson Godfrey were also named in the Senior Open Tournament team (selected from over 100 players), and Mackenzie Godfrey was named in the Junior Girls Tournament Team.
The annual Parents’ Association Fun Run is next Saturday, 23 September 2018. Come along and walk/run 5km or 10km. I look forward to seeing you there.
