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 (firstname.lastname@example.org) 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.
The Mt Huxter’s MTB race mission states that they want to get people riding bikes everyday, and always be happy when on a bike. We think the pictures above support this one hundred percent!
A huge congratulations to all of our Heaton competitors who braved the bitter cold and heavy rain to compete in the 2019 Mt Huxter’s Mountain Bike Challenge. The results of our Heaton athletes can be found below, with the first number indicating their overall placing in an individual or pairs respective races.
On Monday the 1st of April our year 8 Korfball players and some year 7 boys, went down to Elmwood Park to play in a Korfball tournament. We played against other schools from around Christchurch like St Martins, Avonhead Primary and many others. We entered two teams and had lots of fun getting to know each other. We had great games and a great attitude. Thank you so much to Miss Nattrass and Mrs Earl who organised this and for getting us ready to play.
Please ensure you read the following tournament information carefully so you are prepared for a great day of fun and competition. A huge thank you to all staff and parent helpers for their efforts. We have over 200 students participating this year which is a new record!
