Summer Sports Highlights
Kia ora, koutou
It has been a fantastic start to the summer sport program with 29 teams entered into     College Sport Wellington competitions.  These include Cricket (2 teams); Touch (4 teams); Volleyball (6 teams); Tennis (7 teams); Futsal (6 teams); Ki o Rahi (1 team) and Lawnbowls (5 teams).  Well done to the junior school with 106 students actively involved!

Whanau/Staff vs Students As an initiative of both Kaumatua Te Teira Davis and Don MacMillan (father of John MacMillan and First XI Cricket coach) a friendly game between Whanau/Staff and the First XI was held. This was set as a pre-season match for the boys and a fun event between Whanau/Staff and the boys. Some of the staff/whanau team had not played for a decade or more (for some it had been multiple decades) and just being out there again was a great experience. The staff/whanau team was helped along by the Bridewell family having provided both the top scorer with the bat and top bowler on the other side of the ledger. The boys also seemed to thrive on the challenge having provided some handy performances. 

The staff team ended up taking out the two 20/20 matches but cricket was definitely the winner on the day. The sun stayed out all day (even though the forecast said it wouldn't) and in between the two matches a bbq was shared to the enjoyment of all.  A great idea and one that doesn't happen enough. Hopefully the next fixture will provide more staff with the opportunity to test their skills. Any sports team looking to take the staff/whanau on, see Mrs Manuel about the potential of arranging a game.          Mr Muirhead

CSW Touch Tournament  Our Senior Girls and Senior Boys Team competed at the one day regional event last week.  Our girls finished the day seventh and the boys team (mainly year 11) with 3 junior players ended the day third overall.  This is a fantastic achievement for this young team.  Scots College were second to defending champs St Pats’ Silverstream.  Our boys team have gained entry into the Central Qualifying Tournament that is being held in Palmerston North at the end of March.

Summer Sport Fees  These are now due!  Fees can be paid by automatic payment which can be arranged by contacting the accounts office on 567-7175.  Your child may wish to fundraise by selling chocolate bars.  Collect a permission slip from the Sports Office.  Cash payment of fees can be done by placing the money in an envelope with your child’s name, Learning Advisory Roopu and sport on the front.  Take the envelope to the Student Centre and place it in the drop box OR take it to the sports office and a receipt will be issued.  Teams may be defaulted if players have unpaid sport fees.
