2014 NZ Girls Cricket Team

Dear Students, Parents and Caregivers.


As we farewell summer and welcome the autumnal equinox we can reflect on very busy two weeks in sport with the first event on our School Championships calendar completed.  Full results from Swimming Sports can be read on pages 2-4. A special congratulations to Marijke Hattingh of Rm 42 on a very special performance and setting new race records in 7 of the 8 events held.  A special thank you to the parents who assisted on the day and provided the necessary backbone for the event to be held.  Of notable absence this year was the staff relay team with Mr Ensor and Mr Mossop reluctant to enter the pool after last years photo finish. Mr Ensor content to recount past achievements poolside to those who would listen.


A very fruitful couple of weeks for our Boys and Girls Cricket Teams. Particular mention must be made of Mr Potaka’s Active Shield Girls 1st X1 for their achievement in being crowned B.O.P Champions for 2014. The girls had a resounding victory over rivals Whakatane Intermediate with Nensi Patel of Rm 26 Tawa House Scoring 104 runs not out. We wish the girls best of luck as we await confirmation of their next game.


The cricket Max inter-house lunchtime competition took the next step in finding a champion this week with semi-finalists Totara, Kahikatea, Rata and Tawa confirmed for next weeks final. The added incentive of a one handed $20 catch on the embankment has been collected only once by Michael Dawson of Rm 18 Totara House.

Finally as we welcome the move into the later part of the Term we can bid farewell to the fantastic spell of weather and welcome a more unsettled weather pattern that provides the setting for many sporting narratives. Many of our winter codes are trialling or preparing to at present and a reminder to students to remain vigilant in listening to notices, collecting newsletters and seeking information in relation to their chosen codes.

TIS SWIMMING CHAMPS Well done to all those students who competed in the school swimming sports on Monday 5 March. We had 125 students participating. The day was a success and students competed in high spirits representing their houses proudly. Individually a number of students swam really well and will be rewarded through representing our school at the PB/BOP Intermediates School Swimming Champs in Rotorua on Friday 21 March. Over the course of the day students collected points for their house from both participation and placings in heats.


Highlight of the day was 7 school records broken by Marijke Hattingh Rm 42 and we like to congratulate her on an outstanding performance in the following events:

NZ CUP CRICKET TIS v Whakatane Intermediate 12 March 2014

Taylor Bettelheim

Whakatane travelled to Tauranga Intermediate to play our second game shot of the NZ Cup Pool play. They won the toss and elected to bat first. We restricted their batsman in the first 4 overs, then the wickets started to flow as Whakatane began to hit out. Cooper Newton Rm 2 took 3 great wickets, along with Thomas Friskney R17 who took 2 wickets to finish them off. Nathan King Rm 20, Taylor Bettelheim Rm 19, James Gatenby Rm 27 and Thomas Murray-Edwards Rm 1 all chipping in with a wicket each. Once again our sided field exceptionally well, Taylor taking 4 catches. We still have a few areas to fine tune but the team is coming together nicely. Whakatane ended up all out for 39 runs! Taylor and Braxton Fisher Rm 2 opened the batting and chased the total down in just 6.3 overs. Whakatane’s Coach then allowed us to bat on for another hour letting all our batsman have a go, which was good preparation for our next game this Friday against John Paul College from Rotorua. playing a

CRICKET TRAINING WITH KNIGHTS On Friday the 7th of March the TIS NZ Cup team set off down to Pemberton Park. We were met by two players from the Northern Knights. They first introduced themselves Joe Carter, and Bharat Popli. Mr Jeftha shared some stories about Joe when he was at TIS, he was the captain of the schools 1st X1 in 2007. We started with a warm up game, shortly after that we practiced catching. Next we went to the nets for an hour of batting and bowling tips. Everyone really enjoyed the session and are looking forward to our games this week to put the tips learnt into action.

SPORTS HOODIES Last year we introduced a Sports Hoodie as part of the Sports Uniform. This Hoodie is not part of the school uniform but can be worn to any school sporting event throughout the year. This can be weekly at netball, hockey, basketball, at any PB/BOP InterIntermediate, School events and NZCT AIMS GAMES. The cost of this Hoodie is $50.


We have a small supply available to purchase from the Sports Office in smaller sizes. Please enquire at the Sports Office if interested.

PB/BOP SURFING COMPETITION Last Friday, March 6th Rory Goodchap Rm 19, Brady Anderson Rm 1, Toni Power Rm 36 and I took the day off to do a surfing competition. The competition was an Intermediate School tag team event, school team vs school team with 4 surfers in each. Many schools entered with some coming as far away as Gisborne. We arrived at Tay Street Beach, Mount Maunganui at 8.00am to sign in, get our school tent up and go for a practice surf. We got called in at 9.00am to make some plans and understand the rules for our first heat. The rules were – make sure we don’t cut people off their wave, stay at the tent between breaks and have fun! Our plan for the heats were give the first 3 people 5mins each and the last person PB/BOP (the anchor) a good ten minutes. During Surfing this time everyone could only score 2 Team rides, this is a lot harder than it sounds because you have to paddle out past the waves, catch a wave, paddle out AGAIN, catch your second wave and sprint to your teammates up the beach and tag your next team member. Also you are under lots of pressure as your team is really counting on you. We had 3 heats throughout the day and learnt heaps about surfing competitions and surfing strategies. As a team we encouraged each other and challenged each other to do their best. Overall we had a great day, we worked really well as a team & I would like to thank Ms Young for her help. Jorge Goodchap Rm 27

The 11th NZCT AIMS GAMES International Sporting Championships will be held in Tauranga from Sunday 7th to Friday 12th of September 2014. This huge and exciting sporting event, run over 6 days, gives Year 7 and 8 students (11, 12 and 13 year olds) an opportunity to compete against the best of their age in New Zealand and invited countries. The aim of the event is to provide opportunities for students in the middle years to not only be active, enjoy competition and celebrate fair play but also to compete at an elite level for their age group. The event is renowned for providing the high standard competition, challenges and friendship that develops young sports people. The 17 sports codes offered in 2014 will be hosted in superb facilities, encouraging participants to perform at their best. In ten years, the NZCT AIMS GAMES have gone from a small festival of sport, to what is now considered the International Championships for Intermediate and Middle schools. Hand in hand with the growth, has been the emergence of the NZCT AIMS GAMES as a pathway to sporting achievement and success. The GAMES are bigger each year, to a point where they’re now global. The 2013 NZCT AIMS GAMES were embraced by 193 schools from throughout New Zealand,Australia and the Cook Islands (6,500+ competitors). Like our Facebook page
