Senior School House Athletics
The day dawned hot and humid last Wednesday with the threat of rain, however the weather gods were on our side and we enjoyed a fabulous day of competition and participation across the senior school.
All students participated and competed in 12 events throughout the day. The competition was fierce and the participation at each event was high, congratulations to all those students involved.
The javelin throwers had their chance to shine in front of the school with Daniel Harris throwing 41.76 meters to take out the senior event, and Holly Barry 3rd at NZ championships last year also threw a fine 31 meters plus in difficult conditions.
The House relays and 100m finals capped off a wonderful day’s competition with the senior school all cheering their house relay teams with passion and enthusiasm.
In the Intermediate grade the girls relay was taken out by Jupiter while in the senior girls the Apollo team were too strong. The boys intermediate relay race was a thrilling event with Saturn winning in a titanic struggle. Jupiter and Mariner dead heated in second place. The senior boys relay race was another exciting contest, with Jupiter winning from Saturn and Apollo in 3rd place.
Huge thanks to the staff involved, a long day with the 12 events but highlighted by the students being fully engaged, a direct result of your passion and encouragement.
