Junior Catholic Quadrangular Tournament
Yesterday we took 39 Yr 7 & 8 students down to Dunedin to compete in the annual Junior Catholic Quadrangular Tournament.  The tournament was for students from Yr 7 to Yr 10 from Invercargill, Gore and Dunedin. We went as part of St Kevin's intermediate section and played basketball, netball and Futsal. Every game played was counted for points which went towards an overall score and Verdon College from Invercargill won the trophy overall. St Kevin's tied for first place in the basketball which was helped with one of our boys team winning all 5 games and the other winning 3 games. The children were to be commended on their conduct during the tournament and represented our school and St Kevin's with pride.  Thanks to Mr Chikowore, Mrs Cameron, Ms Williams and Mrs Jones-Hogan for your time yesterday.
