St Joseph's Interschool
Yesterday our Yr 7 & 8 students participated in an inter-school against St Joseph's in Timaru on a lovely warm day in which every student played either chess, netball, basketball, football and rippa rugby. Each game was 2 x 15 minute halves and 3 games were played simultaneously.
Our school won the 2 basketball games, 2 netball games, rippa rugby and drew with the football and the chess. Well done to Elias Maher who won the chess overall and he even beat the South Island chess champion!!! Special thanks to our parent helpers Anna Beveridge and Cranos Chikowore who both coached and transported children. The children enjoyed a special treat after the interschool as they went to the Timaru Swimming pool and enjoyed their facilities. More photos of the inter-school will be in next week's blog.
