Tuesday Sport Reports: Ben P (Rm 11)

Football Programme

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.

Student Information
  • Every Tuesday, regardless of the weather, Rock Climbing students should meet in the canteen foyer and eat their lunch at 12:20pm
