Pompallier Rugby Tournament
On Sunday we sent three rugby teams to the Marist Pompallier Rugby tournament held in Timaru and competed against teams from Timaru, Ashburton and Christchurch. The children competed in rugby games, tug of war and sprint competitions and even though we didn't win any silver wear this year, a great effort and sportsmanship was shown by all the players. As one parent commented, the boys and girls were a credit to the school. Many thanks to the coaches and parents who helped with the day.
