On November 1st & 2nd Christchurch South held their annual Athletics Sports. This year we had only one Standards day with Hillary and Ngata competing in the morning followed by Sheppard and Rutherford in the afternoon. This was highly successful and is something that we will continue to do. On Championship day we had a number of outstanding results. In the girls, Gracie Pratten achieved five 1st out of six events. Not to be out done, her sister, Esther Pratten, went one better and placed 1st in all six events. Since I have been at the school this is the first time there has been a clean sweep. In the boys, Louis Hamillton achieved three 1st and Hunter Ryan-Biddick achieved one first and four seconds. Thanks to the weather, the hard working staff and all the parents who turned up and supported the children it was a fantastic two days. A team will be heading down to Ashburton later this month to represent us in the inter-school event. I am sure they will do well.
