Korfball Champions

"What does it take to be a champion? Desire, dedication, determination, concentration and the will to win." On Monday 1st July, South had two Korfball teams participating in the 2nd Canterbury Korfball Year 7 & 8 tournament of 2019. Having been the beaten finalist in the previous tournament, there was plenty of pressure to go one step further this time and bring home the trophy.  Our tournament team was predominantly made up of kids who have never played competitive Korball before. If there were any nerves in these players, they certainly didn't let them show as they played wonderful Korfball throughout their pool. Unfortunately, a late draw held them out of the top 4 playoffs. In their 1 and only playoff game, the team scored a late goal to tie it up 2-2, finishing their tournament undefeated - a wonderful effort! The South A team came out of the gates on fire and only had one goal in mind - bringing the trophy back to CSI. We began our tournament brilliantly, beating a St Martins team 23-1. We continued our strong play throughout the remainder of our pool games and went into the playoffs as the top qualifier.  Jumping straight into the semi final, we faced adversity for the first time all tournament. Within the first 4 minutes of the game, we found ourselves down 2-0, the first time we had been behind all day. However, our players showed wonderful grit and tenacity and came back to win 8-2. We were in the final, and ready to face off against our familiar foes, St Martins 1. The final was a match for the ages! We managed to jump out to an early 1-0 lead, however, St Martins soon drew level with us, bringing the score back to 1-1. After some wonderful defensive plays from both teams, we found ourselves in the final 2 minutes with the score locked up at 2-2. A late long range goal from Helen Woods gave us a narrow 3-2 lead with less than 1 minute to play. All members of the team showcased wonderful skills, abilities and calmness under pressure and we prevailed victorious 3-2. A huge congratulations to Helen Woods, Angus Sevier from the A team and Will Hull from our B team who impressed not only the spectators, but also the Korfball Canterbury selectors, making it into the Tournament team which comprised of 4 boys and 4 girls.

Interschool Cross Country

On June 19th South's top Cross Country runners journeyed to Halswell Quarry to take part in the annual Interschool Cross Country. It was a chilly morning, but thankfully the sun was out, resulting in good running conditions. The competing students represented themselves and the school extremely well and they should all be very proud of their effort. The hard work, determination and resolve that the kids displayed was outstanding. For full results, click here Top performers: Year 7 Girls - Aofie Goldsmith (75th) Year 7 Boys - Lachan Timlin (21st) Year 8 Girls - Leah Pratten (11th) Year 8 Boys - Angus Sevier (1st) Special congratulations must go out to Angus Sevier who is the 2019 Year 8 Boys Champion, finishing his 3km race in a time of 10:32.  

Pioneer Basketball

With the stunning assistance of South parent Julie MacDonald and Nick Erwood from Pioneer Basketball, CSIS has driven strongly into the new season with eight teams showcasing the bucketload of talent at our school.Each team is overseen by an awesome parent manager or coach for competitive games against other local schools which happen each Monday and Friday. CSIS is really lucky to have so many willing and committed parents assisting with the development of this great sport!  Nick has been coaching our A players after school on Wednesdays and the rest of our B and C grade players during lunchtime on Thursdays. He has said he is mightily impressed with the talent pool we possess and expects we will go far this season.
