Term 3 Sports Update

Congratulations Hockey Boys 1XI – winners of the Mayhill Cup!
Thank you to the Pukekohe Indian Association for allowing our team to use the hall between games and after, and the many parents and staff who supported throughout the week.
It was wonderful to see the sportsmanship and hockey skills on display after two years of no tournaments. The boys fought incredibly hard all week and their expectations and resilience were very much kept in check by the calm and cool heads of assistant coach Milan Patel (ex pupil of PHS) and head coach Reinier Veenhuijsen! Thank you both for all you have done for the boys this season.
Special congratulations to Nathan Soma who was also awarded tournament MVP.

It’s time to sign up for T4 summer sports!
For Years 9 & 10, T4 sports are fun, social competitions that usually go for 4-6 weeks. The main sports are volleyball, cricket, touch and softball. You can sign up online (from the website) or at the sports office (in between the 2 gyms).
ALL year level sports available to get involved in for T4 include rowing, distance running, athletics, swimming and surf lifesaving.
There are various short sports tournaments that are held during the term – which gives that extra challenge and incentive.
Teams will be subject to numbers. To support our students and enable them the full experience of all sports on offer, we do need parents and/or older students to coach and manage teams and provide transport. If you are able to volunteer, we would love to hear from you [email protected]
