CAIMS Invitation Tournament 2020

Fun, friendship and fabulous results at the 2020 CAIMS Invitational Tournament

We are extremely impressed with the efforts, attitudes and sportsmanship of all Heaton athletes who took part in the 2020 Canterbury AIMS Invitational Tournament. 

This Invitational tournament was an addition to our sports calendar this year, due to the many cancelled events and disjointed sports season resulting from Covid-19 restrictions. It was a huge undertaking for our whole school community, due to the participation numbers and number of venues. I would personally like to recognise the amazing efforts of our dedicated Heaton staff, and all of our parent/caregiver/family volunteers. Thank you for the commitment and passion you have modelled, and for creating these opportunities for our Tamariki. All of the students who took part made exceptional improvements and created very special memories with their peers.

Level 2 Basketball Guidelines for the Bishopdale YMCA Competition

The Friday evening Bishopdale Basketball competition will continue during Alert Level 2 under the following procedures and guidelines

  • Spectators: to ensure the YMCA keeps under the 100 person limit, only one caregiver/spectator per player can enter the stadium. The caregiver the accompanies their child into the stadium must social distance in the stands and not congregate when watching the game.
  • The YMCA will have a staff member on the door to advise teams when entry is allowed. Teams will not be allowed to enter the stadium until the games beforehand have been completed and the students have exited the stadium (this will be less than 5 minutes before tip-off).
  • Contact Tracing: Mr Evers will mark a register each week to keep a record of both the players in attendance and the parent/caregiver who accompanies them. If your child is unable to attend for any reason, caregivers must inform Mr Evers via email before 11:00am on Fridays.
  • Meeting point: Mr Evers will take down a Heaton school flag and place this in an area close to the entrance as a meeting point for our Heaton teams. Heaton teams are not to mix with other schools outside the entrance when waiting to enter the stadium
  • Entry: Teams will enter the YMCA via the main stadium entrance, and the caregiver that accompanies that player must enter with their son/daughter. In order for the competition to continue, we must be prompt. If a caregiver arrives late they will have to remain outside the stadium. 
  • Exit: Teams will exit the stadium via the emergency fire exit (as indicated by YMCA staff)
  • Sanitisation: any person who enters the stadium will be expected to sanitise their hands before entry.
  • Mouthguards: are not to be removed during games. Hands must be sanitised after putting your mouthguard in (Mr Evers will provide hand-sanitiser for our Heaton teams)
  • Game times: games will be shorted by 2 minutes to ensure there is sufficient time to empty the stadium between each match.
  • Handshakes: there will be no handshakes at the end of each game. Players will give a quick three cheers and then exit the stadium promptly
  • Sickness: If your child is sick, they must stay at home
  • Transport to the venue (early game): If your son/daughter is scheduled to play the early game (3:30pm) and you are unable to transport them to the YMCA, Mr Evers can take them to the venue. To secure a position in the school van parents/caregivers must email Mr Evers prior to 11:00am on Fridays. Transport assistance cannot be provided to any student that has a game time of 4:00pm or later, as students cannot wait in the stadium or outside the venue.
  • Transport (pick up): Students must leave the YMCA with a caregiver directly after their game has finished and not remain outside to congregate in groups. Players will be marked off a register to ensure they have been collected. We appreciate that prompt student collection may be challenging (particularly with earlier games), however, this is a sacrifice we need to make to ensure the competition can continue. If you are unable to collect your child directly after their game, you must arrange to carpool with another parent/caregiver. Please inform Mr Evers via email if your son/daughter is going home with another adult before 11:00am on Fridays so he can keep accurate records and ensure safe collection for all Heaton players. Alternately, if you are allowing your son/daughter to make their own way home from Bishopdale (walk, scooter etc.) this must also be communicated to Mr Evers weekly.

Heaton Cross Country 2020

The Heaton cross country races are a house event that focuses on participation, fun and involvement. All students are expected to take part in their designated race. All we ask is for you to try your best!

DATE: Tuesday 28th July (Term 3, Week 2)

VENUE: Elmwood Park (as a result of field flooding)

MARSHALING: The race will be organised, set-up, timed and marshaled by our Heaton sports leaders. 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.

When year levels arrive at Elmwood Park, the students that are competing in the first races (Yr.8 Girls, Yr.7 Girls) are required to meet on the grass marshalling area that will be marked out next to the Elmwood cricket nets. The students that are waiting for their race will support their peers from the spectator area (on the grass in front of the big tree closest to the bowling green). N.B. If the grass is very wet in the morning, the spectator area will be moved closer to the club rooms.

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.

  • Heaton PE Kit (shorts and shirt)
  • Suitable running shoes – the majority of the course will be on paths so no spikes 
  • Spare pair of shoes and socks (they will likely get wet or muddy)
  • Water bottle
  • Warm Jacket to wear prior and after your race
  • Coloured house shirt and shorts (if students wish to run in their house colours)
  • All relevant personal medication e.g. ventolin
  • A bag to store any wet and muddy clothing
  • Your Hagley sport kit that you will need for the afternoon e.g. rugby kit, netball uniform

COMPETITIONS: The Heaton Cross Country is a shield event. Students will earn the following house points for taking part and for their final placings:

  • 1st = 20 points
  • 2nd = 15 points
  • 3rd = 10 points
  • 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

MEETING / DEPARTURE TIMES:

  • Sports Leaders: All year 7 sports leaders are required to meet Mr Evers at Elmwood Park  at 8:00am. Please be prompt as we need to mark out and set up the course. The year 8 sports leaders will come to school as usual and come over to the park in their house groups as these students will be responsible for pack up.
  • Year 8: An earlier bell time of 8:30am will sound on the day of the cross country. Can Yr. 8 class teachers please complete the roll promptly and then walk their class to Elmwood park via Heaton st. 
  • Year 7: Can year 7 classes teachers please leave Heaton at 9:30am to walk their class to Elmwood park via Heaton st. When you approach the park and enter via the gates next to the bowling greens, please be mindful that the Yr.8 boys race will still be in progress. You may have to wait in this area for 5 minutes before moving to the marshalling spot.

RACE TIMES: Please note that race times may be subject to change depending on weather, arrival times at the park and race completion times. Parents/caregivers are very welcome to attend this event to support you. 

  • Year 8 Girls: 9:00am

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.

Aims Games Championships 2019

 

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!

2019 Weekly Winter Sport Teams & Initial Information

I would like to recognise the fantastic efforts from all of our Heaton students who trialled for a weekly winter sport team this year, and our dedicated teachers/coaches who coordinated the sessions. If you are named in a squad, your specific team will be decided over the course of the next week, and this will be communicated to you by your coaches before the first game. If you have been named in a team however no longer wish to take part, or discover that your name has been listed in multiple teams, please email Mr Evers asap (everst@heaton.school.nz) so alterations can be made.

Confirmed 2019 Heaton Teams

Mr Evers is currently in negotiation with some outside sport providers (rugby, netball, yoga, youth-town etc.), so we can offer some specialist sport programmes for students who will be remaining back at school on Tuesday afternoons. Any student who has missed out on selection or who did not register for trials will have the option of signing up for these specific programmes later this week. School sport programmes will also be coordinated during this time for any student who would prefer this option.

As soon as all of our teams are finalised, a blog post will be created that outlines meeting times, equipment requirements, venues, maps, rules, costs etc. so please ensure you check in regularly this week so you are prepared for our start on Tuesday 14th May.

Heaton Basketball Teams 2019

A huge thank you to all students who registered and took part in basketball trials over the last few weeks. The attitude and performances were fantastic and we are really excited for the season ahead.

As I mentioned at trials, if you were unsuccessful in making a team this year and you are still very interested in taking part, please come and see Mr Evers and he can link you with a team to train with. This way, if we have any injuries, illness or absences there may be scope for you to play some Friday evening games.

Heaton Cross Country 2020

DSC_0227

Congratulations to all participants who took part in the 2020 Heaton cross country event at Elmwood Park. Our students produced some brilliant performances in perfect cross country conditions (cold, windy and muddy).

The event was a big success thanks largely to our Heaton Sports Leaders, who set up, marshalled, timed and recorded all four races. All student helpers should be commended for their efforts and dedication throughout the day. A big thank you must also go out to the Heaton teaching team for their support, and the enthusiastic staff runners who kept our students motivated!

The top 10 finishes in each race will now go on to represent Heaton at next Wednesdays inter-schools cross country championships, held at Halswell Quarry. We wish them all the best and congratulate them for their amazing results.
