Student News
Recently I went to a gymnastics competition.  It was one of the biggest competitions I have been too.  Here is my experience.
"I arrive in Timaru and I see my teammates warming up and then we get to our first event.  I was pretty proud of myself in that routine.  Vault is next to my worst but I just had to go for it.  It was okay I guess.  My favourite is the bar because I have been working on it really well.  I am swinging up and down! Finally, my last event is the beam.  Beam so far has not been my best but we will see.  I made a couple of wobbles but that's alright.

Now it is prize-giving time, the most exciting part or for others they dislike.  'Chelsea Koay'!! Claps come pouring in, it seems like I got first place!  After the competition, I look back at the scores and I beat 2nd place from only 0.1.  I competed in Dunedin, Timaru, Queenstown and Christchurch.  I thank my family, friends and coaches for getting me this far."  Chelsea Koay - year 7

Subway lunches
There will be NO subway lunches on the day of our cross country as we are away from school.

Summer Sports
A notice regarding futsal and touch rugby is on another page in the blog. A paper copy will be given to each family next week.

Touch Rugby Coaching Clinic

We have a coaching course coming up that we really want to encourage all coaches/potential coaches/interested parents/interested teachers to attend. Naomi and Jarrod from Otago Touch are coming up to run it so it will definitely be worthwhile and we would love to get good numbers.
It is for absolutely all skill levels, and will be really useful for coaches to learn what they should be doing throughout all ages and stages. 
Could you please share the details amongst your school communities?

Coaching Clinic (all levels)
14th September
6pm @ Excelsior Clubrooms
Being run by Otago Touch
Contact Shannon for more info
