14 Sep Tournament produces pleasing results

Congratulations to all our students who competed in Winter Tournament events. There were some promising results, especially with so many junior students among our teams. Well done also to Caitlin Reid, Alesha Neame & Zoe Ward who refereed at the SISS Netball Championships. It’s great to see students umpiring and taking the opportunity to further develop their skills. This builds on the earlier contributions of some of our netball umpires who refereed at the Intermediate Winter Tournament where they were commended by organisers for being “fair, on time and confident.”

A huge thank you to all our coaches and managers who prepared our teams and travelled with them. Your time and commitment is very much appreciated and we are grateful to have you all supporting our teams. These people include: Leah Keown, Lesley Fairbrass, Angie Raine, Judith Jenkins, Sam Dempster, Tom Gargiulo, Daine Parata, Liam Crawford (Waimea College Basketball Referee) & Seamus Ryan.
