Netball season is under way, with Friday night being the first connection for the season, although a great deal of preliminary work has already been done by Kaye Barnett and Tayla Blanchard. The teams looked good and performed well, with clear evidence that plenty of practice has already gone in to their working together.
Indulge magazine this Saturday carried a great article on the PTA Fashion Parade and students (and staff) are rehearsing hard for the event. The reality though is that it is ticket sales that this event is all about, not just involvement and publicity. In its 30th Anniversary year it would be great to see the two nights sold out and we ask everyone to please do their bit in networking and encouraging students and contacts in the community to come along.
One thing that is guaranteed is a very enjoyable evening that is so much more than just strutting clothes on a stage. Carol Jenkin (PTA Secretary) at Jenkin@xtra.co.nz is the contact for any queries and a reminder that the dates for the PTA Fashion Parade are Wednesday the 18th and Thursday 19th of May.
David Kadzow has provided these results from the National Age Group Swimming (NAGS) competition in Wellington. David reports that this is the highest level in NZ for young swimmers so the qualifying standard is very high and there were 500+ competitors and in some age groups there were the occasional foreign entry (invitational swimmer). After taking out these overseas swimmers these results are effectively our girls NZ ranking. Reaching a final alone is a massive effort and requires hard training and a tough mental attitude!
