Summer Sports day 2009

Wednesday 25th March 2009 dawned clear and chilly. It was the day nearly 60 very excited senior school pupils were to represent KRS at the North Counties inter-school summer sports day. The event was held at Ray Small Park and Prince Edward Park in Papakura. There were 2 touch teams lead. The year 5 team won all of the games they played. The Year 6 team had some tough matches but they played hard and fair. Whaea Elaine and her parent helpers were very proud of both teams’ efforts.

The softballers’ won 5 of their 7 matches. They were the only team who beat the team from Cosgrove, who were the overall winners. The team played with excellent sportsman ship and with courage. Ngaio slid into home plate with commitment and flair. Her team mates celebrated her 12 point run. Regan hit a massive almost 13 point run against the winning team. Mrs. K. Smith was ecstatic with the softball team’s achievement.

Mr. Naidoo took 16 very able cricketers. They were up against some tough competition. They played as a team and this allowed them to triumph over some other teams.

The teachers and parents who attended the sports day were very proud of the behaviour and sportsmanship of all of the students. Everybody had a blast!
