Rugby Success

Well done to Ty Jackson, Kobe Stranks-Rose, Hunter Weaver and Fletcher Sefton for winning for Ngongotaha the U12 final. All played well in a fast-paced game with lots of ball being distributed out to the wings from a strong forward effort. The play of the game was a pass on his 10-metre mark, just after half time, from Ty down the blindside to his wing who used his pace to score. Congratulations also to Rome Beazley whose U9 team won their final.

Kaharoa School Basketball Team

posted: Thu, August 01, 2019

​I enjoyed an exciting game of basketball last night at the Sportsdrome. The level of teamwork, skill, and determination shown by the children was exciting to see. This team was only formed this year and their hard work and effort have seen them improve massively. Thank you to Julian and Carol for coaching the boys. The boys have a great role model in Julian who would have been one of the most determined riders when riding professionally and showing such a commitment to his coaching responsibilities having only flown in from France yesterday. A great example for the boys to aspire to. MORE NEWS ADDED THIS WEEK BELOW
