Great wig day
CRAZY HAIR: Rooms 25 and 20 had fun for a good cause on Wig Wednesday.
PUPILS FROM Cotswold School donned their wigs to raise money for a very worthy cause. The school raised $632.40 during the recent Wig Wednesday to raise money for the Child Cancer Foundation, which provides personalised support for children diagnosed with cancer and their families. Every week, more than three children in New Zealand are diagnosed with cancer. The Child Cancer Foundation receives no direct funding from the Government, so relies on the generosity of the public and events like Wig Wednesday.
DRESS UP: Maya Powell, Lucy Jackson and Poppy Galvin (top), with Oliver Bradley and Liam Dalley.

CBHS dominate under-18 Crusaders development side By Andrew King A HUGE portion of the players selected in the Crusaders under-18 development squad have been picked from Christchurch Boys’ High. A 55-man team was named on Wednesday with 21 of them coming from CBHS, St Andrew’s and St Bede’s colleges. Eight Canterbury-based players were also selected in the wider training squad. CBHS have 15 players in the squad, as well as another two in the wider training side, including last minute hero Alex Harford. Harford has come off the bench in the last two UC Championship games for CBHS and kicked the winning points late in the game. St Andrew’s will host the players in a training camp from Sunday to Wednesday before a squad of 25 is selected to travel to Wellington to play the under-18 Hurricanes. The match will be a curtain-raiser for the Hurricanes v Crusaders on July 15. St Andrew’s have five students in the squad and two in the wider group. Reuben Cotter was the only St Bede’s player picked.
