On Tuesday 11th June a game of Football was held at Elmwood Park as part of the Tuesday Sport Program. The students were divided into four groups where each group played their own football game to prevent overcrowding. The games were run by St Andrews school graduates, as part of the St Albans Shirley Football Club. It was great to hear the students enjoying themselves and loving their football.
Youthtown – Ki-o-Rahi Game
On Tuesday 28th May, a full on game of Ki-o-Rahi took place on the Heaton field as part of the Tuesday sport program, run by youth organisation Youthtown. Ki-o-Rahi is a fast-paced ball sport played in New Zealand where two teams of seven players play on a circular field divided into zones. Teams score points by touching the ‘pou’ (boundary markers) and hitting a central ‘tupu’ or target. It was an epic, fun packed game.
A massive congratulations to all of our Heaton students for their efforts and enthusiasm at the 2019 school cross country. The event was fantastically organised and coordinated by our dedicated Heaton Sport Leaders, who did a superb job both in preparation and on the race day.

- Every Tuesday, regardless of the weather, Rock Climbing students should meet in the canteen foyer and eat their lunch at 12:20pm
- Students should be dressed in their P.E. gear and prepared to go straight home, as we may not return in time to go back to class to pack up. All the equipment is provided at the Roxx, but it can be very cold in the building so bring your jersey.
- Transportation (either in a parent vehicle or the school van) will leave at 12:30
- The lessons begin at 1:00pm or whenever everyone arrives. Sign in at the Roxx
- At 2:30pm, students will gather outside the Roxx and return to school in parent transport or the school van.
- Depending on the traffic, we will arrive back at school between 2:50pm and 3:00pm. If the bell has not rung, wait at the flagpole (or another spot we may designate later) until the bell has rung. If you are traveling with your family (who has provided transport), you may leave after dropping off other students.
- Please contact Ms Green if you have any questions or concerns. Come to Room 5 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
