Theatre Sports Final Competition
'Our 2022 Court Theatre Junior Theatre Sports Champions this year is Christchurch South Karamata Intermediate.' - Theatre Sport Judges. What an amazing year we have in the Performing Arts here at CSKI and in my opinion this is up there as one of the major highlights. Josh Cousins, Es Pitts, Iris Hill and Xavier Ballantine who were our Theatre Sports Team that had won their heat two weeks ago now have made history in the Canterbury Theatre Sports Junior Championship. They competed and battled in improv art against 3 high schools (2 Riccarton teams, 2 Christ College teams and a Christchurch Girls High team). After playing 3 games, listening to Es sing, Josh tell his funny stories, Xavier showing physical comedy and Iris showing off her range of accents, we are proud to announce that they have won the whole competition and are the 2022 Junior Theatre Sports Champions. They have made history as the first Christchurch South Team to win the whole competition and the first intermediate school to win it since it started in 1989. We would like to extend a thank you to Court Theatre for running this competition and allowing our school to compete and take the victory. We would also like to thank the high schools that competed, who at the end gave a real sense of a Performing Arts community and supported/congratulated our young performers. Josh and Es we look forward to working with you next year as we try to be back to back champions. Xavier and Iris, we hope to see you and verse you at the 2023 competition. Keep that passion and look forward to seeing where your future goes with this.
Inter-school Triathlon 2022
On Monday 21st November 11 students represented CSKI at the annual triathlon event at South Erye road, making use of a private farm irrigation lake, adjacent paddocks and the roads nearby. The weather was perfect and all the kids gave 100% effort and came away with a great experience and some amazing results. Thank you to the parents who transported and supported the kids down there. If it wasn’t for you events like this wouldn’t happen.Results:Year 7 Girls11th Cleo Newman20th Lila NoonanYear 7 Boys12th Lucas SutherlandYear 8 Girls11th Grace Smith17th Ashlee Hazlett18th Hannnah Watson22nd Tessa Lloyd-Mann26th Lucy Luxford39th Annabel WilsonYear 8 Boys21st Charlie Quinn37th Leo de Monchy
On Thursday 3 November the Social Awareness team organised a school disco. Although the Covid Pandemic is ongoing, we wanted to take the opportunity to gather together and celebrate moving into the next phase of living with Covid. We followed safe practice and provided plenty of ventilation and it was an incredibly fun and successful night! Over 150 students attended and everyone had a good time. It was a great atmosphere and was super fun. We had the opportunity to buy lollies and drinks, danced with our peers and even some of the staff were joining in on the fun. Mr Hastings started a popular conga line and Mr McBrearty was dancing in the sound booth while doing the most awesome job being DJ for the night. Overall it was a great experience, thanks to all the teachers for helping with all the duties that come along with running a disco, we are looking forward to the next one!By Sienna
