Years 7&8 2nd XI Hockey Team

The Years 7&8 2nd XI Hockey team are doing very well, particularly given that many are new to the sport or have never played together before. The team includes two players from nearby schools, and often a Year 6 player who helps out when numbers are short. The students have worked very hard to include everyone, and they all get along and play together very well. It’s been a bit of a rough start this season with the team yet to win a game, but their perseverance and positive attitudes are admirable. It’s great to see them all improving, especially since whole-team trainings are impossible and many of the students cannot attend lunchtime trainings due to other commitments. We’re proud of the way they play and the positivity they bring to the games.

BIC Winter Sailing Fantastic opportunity right on our door step

Soren Johnston, Ethan Manning-Harris, Alex Wood, Blake Wood and Matthew Rist are enjoying the BIC winter sailing sessions at Manly Beach. The sailors are receiving fantastic advice and support from Sean and Liam Herbert and Sir Russell Coutts.
The sessions will end in a North Island Regatta in July 2016.

Queens Birthday no rest for Oliver and Josh

Oliver Reeves and Josh Bull spent 3 full days on the sea training in the AON National Youth Laser Clinic. The first two days were light winds and the squad did starts over and over again. The third day the wind picked up and the squad did speed practice all the way to Rangitoto and back several times.

The sailors from this clinic will train over winter with the intention of attending the Youth Trial Regatta in the hope of being selected for the NZ Youth World Team.
