This week at school:
Monday: This is Queens Birthday, its a public Holiday throughout New Zealand so no-one will be at school!
Tuesday: Y8 Speech Finals in the Hall. Congratulations and good luck to Lucy and Zubair who are representing Room Six at the finals. We'll be posting the highlights online later in the week.
Wednesday: The Boys Open Grade Rugby Union Finals. A huge day for our school as our Boys Open Grade team attempt to reclaim the title that we last held in 2006. A important full day of games competing against other teams in the competition - Remuera Intermeidate, Pakuranga Intermediate, Howick Intermediate and the Bailey Road/Stanhope Road Combination team. Having already had friendly games against Howick and Remuera in the past few weeks the team will need to step up for the finals. No more friendly games! The teams forwards have looked dominating this term but the backs need to fire on the finals day against some class opposition.
The Girls Open Grade team are next scheduled to play against St Pius X School in a friendly at Sacred Heart College on June 10th. They will then put their undefeated record on the line at the Eastern Zone finals on June 17th.
Thursday - having secured two wins in a row against Boys teams the Girls Basketball team will really have to step up against the form team of the Thursday night competition, the BBI Girls team. They were runners up at last years Eastern Zone Finals and have played some impressive quality Basketball. Tamaki also get to welcome back the only remaining player from the team that placed 4th at last years Nationals, Meliame.
