I just wanted to share how proud we are of the boys who represented our school at the Secondary Schools Regional Basketball Tournament last week, and express our appreciation to all those who helped them get there.
The boys placed 14 out of 24 teams, a great result considering we haven't had a team in this competition for a number of years. They played hard, learnt a bunch, strengthened friendships, and did the school proud both on and off the court. We received a number of positive comments about their behaviour and sportsmanship during the tournament. The owners of our accomodation were impressed with the boys and thanked them for leaving the place so tidy.
A big thank you to Mai Morgan for helping to coach the boys and Maurice and Liz for your support throughout the season and during the tournament. Thanks also to our travelling fan club.
Thank you Poppa Joe for organising Sponsorship/Donations from Caring Kids Childcare, Waikato District Council, and Super Value Ngaruawahia. Also a big thank you to those who supported our Movie Fundraiser or came to watch our boys play throughout the year.
We have just been so impressed with these boys and all they have achieved this year and are looking forward to another great season in 2020!!
