A fantastic result by our amazing Adventure Racing team who won the Canterbury Mixed Premier team competition, qualifying for the National finals on Great Barrier Island in December. The team of Molly Spark, Georgia Spark, Isabella Logie, Lotte Hope, Archie Reekie, Clayton Shadbolt, Rupert Shepherd (all Year 10) and Matthew O’Donnell (Year 9), competed in orienteering, mountain biking, kayaking and problem solving/team building activities. There were 24 teams from Christchurch, South Canterbury, Ellesmere and North Canterbury.
St Andrew’s College had a team of 14 swimmers in Wellington last weekend at the New Zealand Secondary Schools’ National Swimming Championships, finishing as the top co-ed school and boys’ relay team, and second boys’ school. Overall, it was a meet of personal bests and 30 medals won. Thanks to the team managers, Lynn Cowie, Carly Stewart and Mr Ian White.
