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.

Please find below a list of our amazing results and achievements:

This was a brand new experience for Lilliana, who showed great dedication and motivation to learn routines from watching film. Congratulations on a wonderful effort Lilli!

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:

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.

CJCA Competitive Boys Rules and Draw November 2022 version 2

FESTIVAL INFORMATION: The aim of this festival is to provide meaningful participation for all the teams and this will involve the draw for Day 2 being based on the results of Day 1. The festival involves some smaller schools or schools with less involvement in cricket compared with other schools so will be seeking to create games on Day 2 that provide a good level of ‘Like vs Like” competition.  Schools have been split into 4 Pools of 4 for Day 1

  • Schools supply their own scorers and match balls
  • CJCA will set up grounds and supply at least 1 umpire per game
  • Games will start at 9.15am each day with afternoon games scheduled for a pm start but this can be bought forward if both teams are ready. If games run their course we hope to finish no later than 4pm each day.
  • Bowlers are limited to 3 overs per bowlers up to 9 bowlers may be used.  Should a game be reduced to less than 15 overs bowlers will be limited to 2 overs.
  • Over Length: 6 balls except the last over overs can be a maximum of 8 balls
  • To avoid confusion batting retirements have been reduced to 25 balls per batter in line with CJCA Saturday Intermediate rules – batters may bat the over out after receiving 25 balls INCLUDING WIDES OR NO BALLS.
  • A Grace Period (6 balls) will exist with players who go onto retire after being dismissed in their Grace Period not being able to return.
  • Retired batters (who are not dismissed in their Grace Period) may return in order in which they retired should the rest of the batters be dismissed – Last Boys Standing exists in this Festival.

MEETING TIMES & LOCATIONS:

Students are required to meet Mr Evers in the hall promptly at 7:45am, and should arrive at school wearing their cricket whites, Heaton PE top and Heaton cap. James (Room 3) will be assisting on Monday 28th November.

GAME TIMES AND STUDENT COLLECTION:

It is expected that students will be finished for the day at approx 3:45pm. Students will need to be collected directly from Hagley Park, and they must check in with Mr Evers prior to departure so he knows that they are leaving with a trusted adult.

If your son is unable to be collected from Hagley park on either or both competition days, please communicate this with Tim Evers via email so alternate arrangements can be made. Alternatively, if your son will be car pooling with another family, please make contact so a record can be kept to manage student collection.

Heaton Athletics Days 2022

Term 3 Korfball Tournament 2022

Being at the tournament was an amazing experience and opportunity. Most of us almost tripped on our way to Hagley Park because of all the excitement. Group of teams were said aloud and we all encouraged each other. Many people were feeling anxious for their first game but they also were super excited to be playing Korfball and missing out on school. Everyone had high expectations in participating and it was a great opportunity to play with people from other classes and years that they didn’t know. At the end of the day everyone was so worn out, tired, and sore.Most importantly we wore our school uniform with confidence and showed the Heaton values.

Tusi & Lucy (Room 8)

On Monday the 19th of September the Heaton Korfball teams went to the Hagley park netball courts for their Korfball tournaments against other schools. Once there they had round robin matches in the morning and then they had competition matches after lunch.

Our Heaton Korfball teams did astonishingly well that day with some awesome sportsmanship and skill. The teachers Mrs. Eames, Mr. Colvin and Mr. Evers helped escort our teams to Hagley park. Heaton #4 came 11th, Heaton #3 came 12th, Heaton #2 came 13th, Heaton #1 came 15th, Heaton #5 and came 17th.

Hithesh (Room 7)
