Newsletter Volume 14 26 October 2012 12 HOUR RELAY ‘GET YOUR GAME ON!’ Jessica Cox Rm 29 in action on the Horizontal Bungy

Dear Students, Parents and Caregivers Welcome back to our students and families for the final term of the year. This term we boast an impressive 559 students involved in 66 teams across 11 different codes ranging from cricket to surfing. Congratulations to all students involved for making the commitment and to our parents and volunteer coaches for their time and making this possible. Congratulations to Mrs Hughes and the staff and students of Rata House on their win in Friday’s 12 Hour Relay. The team lead from the start and showed determination to ward off a strong challenge from Totara House and emerge victorious at the end of the day. The efforts of their students personified what it means to be a true champion. With the promotion of Mr Shane Cunliffe to Principal at Te Puke Primary School and subsequent reshuffling I am happy to take on the responsibility of Head of Sport for Term Four and look forward to working with the very capable Mrs Hampton. I would like to acknowledge Gareth Scholes and the huge effort he has put into this role over the last four years. His passion, commitment and drive have been the foundation of the many successes the school has enjoyed over the years. Not only does he commit long hours to the school and sport he volunteers as a coach and referee in the community. This term the sports department is bolstered by the return of Brett Hampton from playing cricket in Holland. We also wish him well for his season with the Northern Districts Knights. In addition our other sports assistant Sam Shergold has won selection in the New Zealand U20 Surf Lifesaving Team which will compete in the Rescue 2012 World Lifesaving Champs. We wish Sam the best of luck with his endeavours. We are very privileged to have such esteemed individuals and look forward to utilising their wealth of sporting talent within our school when they are not on respective representative duties.

NZ CUP CRICKET Last Thursday the Tauranga Intermediate boys cricket team took on two teams from Hamilton and Tauranga to try and progress through to the New Zealand Cup Northern Districts Final. First we had Cambridge, we were doubting if we were even going to play as the weather kept on turning on and off. But in the end we made the decision to go. As we got there it started to rain heavily so we had to hunker-down in the bushes (luckily we brought a tarpaulin to cover us up)! Eventually we got the toss done, we won and chose to bat. After a good solid 50 from Marcel Collet Rm 18 we had a good base of 146. The bowlers did their bit as well, getting them all out for 37, with an outstanding effort from David Rout Rm 19 with figures of 4 wickets for 3 runs. After much deliberation it was decided that our second game against Aquinas would be abandoned and would be played on Friday. After a quick shower play was on, and thanks to an early wicket by Oakley Dench we had our heads up. After some outstanding bowling and fielding we had them all out for 63 runs, with Finn Sears Rm 15, Mikaere Leef Rm 1 and Oakley Dench Rm 20 all getting two wickets.

Mikaere Leef cutting loose!

Our batting didn't start off so well after an early run out. With David getting a quick 25 and Taylor Kite Rm 36 and Mikaere getting not outs to guide Tauranga Int to victory! Final score, Aquinas 63 us 64 with 8 wickets and 7 overs to spare. Mikaere Leef Rm 1

PB/BOP TENNIS This year we had a good solid tennis team looking to defend our title from last year. Each team consisted of two boys and two girls to compete in the PB/BOP Intermediate School Tennis Champs held at Whakatane. Our team was Jackson Currie Rm 20, Robin Yang Rm 19, Julia Newman Rm 3 and Kalais Going Rm 4.

Winning TennisTeam

The tournament is based on two competitions, singles and doubles played to time. The Teams accumulate points based on where they placed in both competitions. Once again the competition was extremely close, this year Whakatane Intermediate had a very strong team but we managed to pick up one more extra point than them and came away defending our title being the overall winning school. Individual highlights on the day: Kalais Going Julia Newman Jackson Currie Robin Yang

NORTH ISLAND ROAD CYCLING CHAMPS On the 30th September and 1st of October was the Schools Road Cycling National held in Fielding. Â The first race was the 16km Road Race. I attacked a few times but I was unsuccessful, I went around last corner very fast hoping to get a gap and I maintained that gap until an another boy sprinted me just before the finish finishing 2nd. The next race was the points race at Mansfield when you sprint every 2nd lap in six laps. The 1st sprint I came third trying to get away but just got caught before the end. The next sprint I got third again but then a boy got away on the second to last lap but just before the finish I caught him and tried to sprint him but he just beat me by millimetres and I came 3rd overall in points. It was really successful weekend and I was also the only one who medalled in both events. Theo Wright Rm 37
