Our school duathlon was held at Christchurch South Intermediate on Tuesday 18th February. The weather was perfect and with over 500 children competing it was a fantastic event. The Year 7s started us off with the girls' and boys' teams, followed by the girls' individual and lastly the boys' individual. Every student gave it their all and it was pleasing to see the support and encouragement that the children gave to their peers while they were competing. The Year 8s followed the Year 7s and they did not disappoint. They were also very supportive of each other and I feel that South have a great group of children this year. Every student that competed on the day should be proud of their effort and be commended on showing ‘The South Way’. A big thank you to all the helpers and staff on the day. Without you events like this could not happen. Finally, thank you to all those parents/caregivers who came down to support the competitors. It was fantastic to see!
