Middle School Sports Leaders
Last term our Middle School Sports committee engaegd in a 6 week training programme with Wairau Valley Special School and Glenfield College special needs department. The aim was to prepare the students for the special Olympic basketball tournament involving schools from all over the North Harbour region.
The Middle School students from the sports committee planned drills and skills and small sided games to prepare the WVSS and Glenfield College students for their big tournament, this involved 4 training days prior to the tournament. They had fun and certainly helped improved the skill sets of all the students involved.
Pam King the Principal of WVSS sent Kristin School the following:
The teachers have asked me to pass on their thanks and appreciation for the way these students worked with our students. The patience and perseverance of your students when working with our students was admirable and heart-warming. They acted as role models and made our students feel great self-worth. Your students showed exemplary support, enthusiasm and leadership. Our students gained in so many ways including participation, engagement, skill development and confidence.
