Challenge Day 2019
Whilst a group of our students competed at Ngā Puna Wai for Championship Day, South held its own Challenge Day. This was a new event this year that provided traditional Athletics activities alongside some unique, physical events; such as Catching the Train, Gumboot Toss, and Target Throw. The day was completed with a medley of relay races. After each pod's top four runners competed against each and the teachers, it was time for the Ultimate Relay! A race that required EVERY student to run for their pod in an attempt to achieve the most amount of laps within a time limit. Kia mau te wero! The students took up the challenge of the day by giving it their best, pushing themselves to achieve the challenge mark at each event, and represented their Pod with pride. Ka mau te wehi!
Athletics Championship Day 2019
220 of Christchurch South's top athletes embarked on a journey to Ngā Puna Wai Sports Hub to compete in Athletics Championship Day 2019. This was the first time that this event was held at this state of the art facility. The display that these athletes put on was truly incredible and a sight to behold! Whether it be the nail biting finishes in the 1200m and 100m finals, or, the jaw dropping displays that were being put on at the high jump and long jump. The shot put and discus events provided the students with an opportunity to showcase the mixture of raw strength and precise technique that many of our students possess. The day was capped off with some incredibly tense and enjoyable pod relay races. For a full list of final results, please click here
CAIMS Indoor Tournament
On Monday 21st and Tuesday 22nd of October, 2 South basketball teams participated in the CAIMs Indoor Tournament held at Pioneer Stadium. We also had a volleyball team and a badminton team participate in the tournament. Our girls basketball team performed exceptionally well and were well supported and coached by Kathy Burrows. The girls showcased some wonderful grit, determination and hustle and finished 3rd overall. The boys basketball team played some wonderful team basketball over the two days and we’re brilliantly led by coach Devon Watson. Our boys were able to demonstrate their skills and ability throughout the tournament and found themselves in the final against Heaton. Unfortunately, it was not to be and our boys went down against a much larger Heaton team. Thank you to our two wonderful coaches, all the parents that came down to support, and of course, our South basketballers who represented our school beautifully. Meanwhile across town, our badminton players represented themselves extremely well in a tough competition and finished 3rd equal overall. Our volleyballers had to travel to Lincoln to take on their competition. Achieving 4th place overall is a pretty incredible effort, especially when you consider that many of our players and never played competitive volleyball before!
