Year 7 and 8 Sports Review

Eastern Zones Orienteering 2014
On Monday 14th April our Year 7 and 8s students competed in the Eastern Zones Orienteering held at Auckland Domain.  We entered three teams; Year 7 mixed, year 8 mixed and Year 8 girls.  They had to be able to read maps and race against the timer around the terrain of Auckland Domain finding the controls.  Well done to you all for trying something new and better still enjoying it.

Every Tuesday this month of May a squad of 19 students trained and were coached up at Snow Planet by Lauren, Steph and Brad.  They improved greatly on their technique and speed and enjoyed their time on the snow.
