Rippa Rugby
A big thank you to Lee Woodhouse and Jody Robinson who transported and coached our Yr 5/6 Rippa Rugby team in Timaru last week.  Due to weather conditions, the games were played on the hockey turf instead of grass which changed the game plans a bit. We won 3 games and lost 2 and ended up getting 3rd.  Well done.

St Joseph's Timaru Interschool

The permission slips and money were due back today and only half the families have returned their permission slips.  The forms and money have to be in before we go as we are paying for the pool and hydroslide at the time.  Please ensure your money and permission forms are handed in immediately.

St Mary's Interschool
This week our Yr 8 children participated in the annual St Mary's from Mosgiel interschool which was played out at St Kevin's College.  Every child participated in one or more games and played with great skill and sportsmanship. A very big thank you to St Kevin's College and Sarah Clapperton (Sports Coordinator) who allowed us to use their grounds, organised our wonderful referees for us and for loaning us their rugby tops to play in.  Thank you to the wonderful parents who helped and supported the children on the day. The games were closely contested and some were only won in the last few minutes, especially the rugby and basketball.  The result came down to the last game of basketball which was a real thriller and could have gone either way.  Results are:

Football - won by St Mary's - 6-1
Rugby 7 aside - won by St Joseph's 41-33
Netball - won by St Mary's - 25-20
Basketball mixed - won by St Joseph's - 61-40
 Basketball mixed - won by St Joseph's - 37-32
