School Athletic Sports

We have whole school Athletic Sports on Monday at Saxton Fields.  We will be going by bus to and from the venue.

Students will need their PE gear, a hat and running shoes.  They will need to bring morning tea, lunch and a drink of water.  It would be wise to wear sunscreen.

Parents and family are welcome to attend!

All Blacks Win

On Sunday the 1st of November almost everybody in New Zealand was up watching the All Blacks playing the Australians at 3am .Everybody was probably nervous until the All Blacks put in the first massive tackles and smashed the Australians then all the nerves were starting to go away.The Australians were under massive pressure which made the Australians give away a penalty to the All Blacks and Dan Carter kicked it over for 3 points.The same thing happened again but to the All Blacks but without the big hits. Now it was 3-3.The All Blacks expanded their lead to 9-3 before half time. Everyone was thinking 9-3 isn't a bad lead but suddenly the All Blacks got close to the try line and Nehe Milner Skutter was over and he had scored.Dan Carter got the conversion over. At half time the score was 16-3.        

Ma'a Nonu scored an amazing try to make it 21-3. Later on in the game Ben Smith got yellow carded. Somehow the Aussies scored 2 really good tries and Bernard Foley the Aussie kicker converted both of the kicks to make it 21-17.Dan Carter got an outstanding drop goal to make it 24-17.The All Blacks finished off their win with an amazing converted try and a penalty kick. The final score was 34-17.  Yah for New Zealand!!
