As a school we have had an exciting week of sport played out over last week and the weekend. Both our 1st XI Hockey team and Secondary Netball team had impressive wins over PNBHS and PNGHS. It was fantastic to see the improvement that each team had made and the skills that were on display. Well done to everyone, and we look forward to the Hockey final against Rangitikei College.

Just a few points separated the top three tribes, after the first nine games among junior year levels. The Secondary netball games played today clearly had a lot riding on them. By the final game, Asher had a narrow lead over Naphtali in overall points - and that game was played by Asher and Naphtali. Naphtali got off to an early lead thanks to good team work between Opeti and Paula, and some perseverant defence by Josh and Jess. However with the whole competition coming down to this final game, it was Asher Tribe who fought back to tie the game and win the overall tribe competition.
Well done to the long stretching Jarred Burrows in defence, as well as hard working athletes like Molly and Atalia in midfield and the accurate shooting of Hope and Natalya to ensure Asher won the competition.

Congratulations to Year 11 students Olivia De Groot and Caitlyn Brown for their efforts in the regional Evento Wearable Arts competition.
Competing against senior high school students from around the Manawatu, Olivia's entry in the 'Yellow' section placed second overall. Written on her piece were opposing concepts like 'beautiful' and 'ugly', 'wanted' and 'stupid' - encouraging others to choose a positive self image.
Both girls are to be commended for the depth of thought and symbolism incorporated into their pieces, as well as all the hard work put into their entries.
