In addition, some fundamental skills sessions have been organised to take place at school:

Next week, the junior and middle school will partake in a cricket skills programme during the school day.

We are hoping that some of the BOP Steamers players will come later in the year to test the Rippa rugby skills of our middle and senior school students.

Plus, there is a girls only cricket skills programme on Wednesday mornings for any year 4-6 girls wanting to improve their cricket skills. This will take place Wednesday 3rd, 10th and 17th November at 8am on the netball courts. If you are interested in joining please meet the cricket coach by SH1.

All of these sports events are subject to Covid-19 alert levels, and will follow Covid-19 health and safety protocols.

All winter sport uniforms and sports equipment, borrowed from school must now be returned to the school office or sports office in the Tech building.

Finally, I am located in the school Tech block during the hours below, otherwise email is a reliable source of contact.
