Boys' School Senior Athletics 2019

November 14, 2019 at 3:08 PM

After the Middle School athletics event was cancelled the previous day, in a torrent of rain, it was fingers crossed for the Senior School event yesterday - which happily went ahead without a hitch!

Held at the Pakuranga Athletics Club at Lloyd Elsmore Park, the conditions proved perfect for a day of competitive running, throwing and jumping, with the boys giving each event every ounce of their energy! No matter their ability, the determination on each face to give their best was fantastic to see!

Year 7 student, Luka Makata proved a record breaker, with a mighty throw of 10.08m in the Shot Put. Well done Luka!

As always, we were truly grateful to the willing band of parents who offered their assistance, taking the role of timekeepers in all the races from 100-800m – with a range of heats and finals, a huge number of boys flashed past them at the finish line! A sincere thank you for your help and good humour!

We now look forward to Girls’ School joining with the Boys’ School for the Relay Races on Friday morning at 10.30am. We welcome families to come in support!
