Year 7 Sports leaders will coordinate the year 8 races, and year 8 sports leaders will coordinate the year 7 races. This event provides an opportunity for our sports leaders to take on the responsibility of coordinating a race, so please be patient and considerate.

EQUIPMENT REQUIREMENTS (WHAT DO I WEAR?): Students must ensure they have the following equipment with them on race day. Please note there is a scheduled full-school assembly after our scheduled races so it is really important you read the equipment requirements carefully. As year 8 students have the first races and the scheduling is tight, students can arrive in their house colours so we can begin promptly.

  • Spare pair of shoes and socks (they will very likely get muddy)

  • 4th – 10th = 5 points
  • 11th- 20th = 3 points
  • 21st – 30th = 2 points
  • 31st + = 1 point

Based on the race results (placings and times), the top 10 students from each gender/year level will be invited to represent Heaton at the Cross Country Championships, held at the Halswell Quarry in term 3

Map Directions / Key / Information

  • Runners start at the green triangle (this area will be clearly marked out and have our sports leaders stationed to direct students)
  • Students will run 2 x full clockwise laps of the red track. Students must make sure they head right when they get close to the Elmwood Park sand, and head up towards St Andrews.
  • On the third lap, students will cut in close to the netball courts, and finish back at the starting position (red triangle)
  • In the event that parts of our Heaton field are flooded, the course may have to be altered slightly or shorted to avoid these areas. Your patience and understanding is greatly appreciated.

MORNING TEA TIME: In order for us to ensure our four races are completed to schedule and so that we are ready for our full school assembly, morning tea time for year 7 will be 30 minutes later than usual (10:45am – 11:05am). Your teachers will  provide you with an update and reminder about this this on Monday.

When year 8 have their morning tea (10:15am – 10:35am), they can access the hall quad, Otahuna eating area and science netball court (closest to the LRC). All other areas will not be accessible due to the race.

2020 Heaton Basketball Schedule – Term 2

Welcome back Heaton Basketball enthusiasts! 

As things are currently a little different in our wider community and at school in regards to sport, we cannot organise our traditional Heaton basketball trials to select our teams that play at Bishopdale on Friday evenings. As an alternative, Mr Evers will be holding daily House Basketball sessions at lunchtimes (12:45pm – 1:15pm), for all those students who expressed their interest last term.

The Basketball sessions will take place in the Heaton hall, except for on Thursday where 1/2 of the outdoor court will be used due to Kapa Haka. Students must hand-sanitise both on entry and exit to the hall, and the equipment will be cleaned by Mr Evers after each session. The activities that will take place will be non-contact based, to adhere to our school social distancing procedures.

Based on these sessions over the next six weeks, Mr Evers will select 6 boys teams and 2 girls teams that will be invited to represent our school in the YMCA competition. At this stage, we have not received any news from the YMCA regarding when the competition will begin and how it will be structured. As soon as we have any updates, I will keep you all posted.

To find out if you have registered for theses sessions and to access the house schedule, please select the link below:

Term 2 Basketball Schedule & Participation List

CJCA Cricket Tournaments 2020

It was an absolute pleasure to be involved with our four Heaton cricket teams that competed in the 2020 CJCA Christchurch Cricket Championships. There was a brilliant atmosphere at Hagley Park, with Heaton entering two competitive teams, and two development teams. The improvements from all of our players involved was fantastic to witness! All of our Heaton teams played an attacking and entertaining style of cricket, supported one another, and developed more confidence. We also had some amazing individual achievements with some students recording half centuries, an unbeaten century and two hat tricks!

Our Heaton Boys development team finished the tournament with an impressive 2 wins from 4 matches, and our Heaton Girls development team finished with a perfect 5 wins from 5 matches. Our Boys 1st XI team lost a nail biter to St Thomas school, and won the remaining 3 fixtures to finish fifth out of twelve teams. Our Heaton Girls 1st XI continued their spectacular recent form with three comprehensive wins against Cobham, ChCh South and STAC, to win the tournament and progress as Christchurch Champions.

I would like to thank coach Barry V.B and Miss Caygill for the continued and amazing support, guidance and encouragement they have provided our teams for the duration of this term. I would also like to recognise all of those caregivers who could make it down to Hagley to provide their support over the four tournament days.

Heaton Swimming Sports 2020

The 2020 Heaton Swimming Championships provided an opportunity for our competitive and experienced swimmers to battle it out for school selection at the Canterbury AIMS Championships, and for our recreational swimmers to earn house points and improve their confidence.

We were very fortunate to have the support of our Heaton Learning Support Team, Mrs Earl, Ms Green and a number of parents/caregivers who gave up their time to help coordinate this opportunity for our Heaton students. Thank you for your dedication and selflessness!

A huge congratulations must go out to all of our competitors for the positive and supportive way in which they competed. We had a number of amazing individual performances, and are very much looking forward to seeing some of you compete at next months Inter-schools event.

70232746_2361367807447567_2274529918782013440_n

The 2019 Anchor AIMS Games was an event of epic proportions. There were over 11,500 competitors who were representing 365 schools from throughout New Zealand, Asia and the Pacific. These staggering participation numbers place it ahead of the number of athletes that competed in the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio!

Heaton were superbly represented by two sports teams (Girls’ 11-a-side Hockey & Boys’ Basketball) and 9 individuals who competed in BMX, Squash, Cross Country, Swimming, Gym-sports, Golf and Multisport. Our Heaton athletes have worked tirelessly over the past six months to prepare for this tournament, and have been wonderfully supported by their coaches, parents, family and teachers. I would  personally like to take this opportunity to thank Miss Seales, Mrs Dore and Mrs Newton for all of their efforts, energy and expertise. Without you, this opportunity would not be possible for our athletes.

I would like to congratulate all of our students for their individual and team success. We are extremely impressed with both the personal and sporting development that occurred during your week in Tauranga. You have all made yourselves, our school and your families very proud! We are so pleased that all of your hard work, sacrifice and efforts have been rewarded.

Our Heaton Hockey Team (affectionally dubbed the frogs) have been crowned Aims Games Champions, bringing home the 11-a-side Hockey cup with a perfect 8 wins from 8 games. Lauren S (Room 8) has also added to her impressive national tournament successes with a bronze medal win ( only .3 points behind the gold medal). With other personal best performances, many top 10 finishes and amazing improvements, this years Aims Games was a spectacular success.

Being on 2020!

Students will need to be collected directly from Hagley Park, and they must check in with Ms Caygill prior to departure so she knows that they are leaving with a trusted adult.

DRAWS & RULES:
PARTICIPATION EVENT
A reminder that the Participation Tournament will be played with Incrediballs so Protective gear is optional. THE CJCA WILL PROVIDE THE PITCH SET UP AND THE BALLS FOR THE PARTICIPATION EVENT.
The participation event as outlined will play THREE 12 over each games each day these are programmed for starting at 9.15am, 11am and at 1pm.

PARTICIPATION TEAMS SHOULD MUSTER AT 8.45AM FOR A BRIEFING AT THE BIG TREE IN THE POLO GROUNDS SO WE CAN GO OVER THE RULES BEFORE WE START PLAY
COMPETITIVE EVENT
As we only have 4 teams there will be a 3-game Round Robin to decide the winner and the runner up for the next phase of the Tournament in Term 4. THIS WILL MEAN THERE WILL BE NO FINAL ON THE 23RD OF MARCH.
The CJCA will provide umpires but schools need to do the SCORING. Finishing orders will be based on points and the  Net Run Rate. The 3rd round will play Friday morning so the Tournament should be completed by approximately 12.15pm Friday.
