The Pasifika Rugby Challenge at Eden Park

Our students were very fortunate to be invited to lead the New Zealand Heartland, Fijian, Samoan and Tongan Rugby Teams onto the field at Eden Park during the Pasifika Challenge Double-Header. Each child received their t-shirt and lined up next to one of the famous rugby players in the tunnel and waited patiently. When announced, they ran out onto the field with a member of the team and stood in front as the national anthems were sung. It was a very exciting experience and many students were even spotted on Sky Sport. The students made the most of the day by getting their faces painted and creating motivational signs to hold up for the teams.

AFL Lessons

The students of Room 6 really enjoyed learning about AFL. This was not a well known sport among the students and it was great to see everyone give it a go and learn the key skills, such as kicking, bouncing and the hand pass. Over the lessons we grew in our understanding of the sport and by the end of the term all students could participate in a proper game of AFL.
