South East Cluster Winter Sports Tournament

On Friday of Week 9 we took 4 teams of HES sportspeople to a tournament. It was based at Waikato University, but some sports were also played at St John's and Knighton Normal School. 

Our rugby, netball, hockey and basketball teams played extremely well and represented HES with pride. 

What a fantastic day! 

The Geckos hockey team won half their games and drew half their games.

The rugby team scored 4 tries, and were only beaten by the team that won their pool.

The netball team won all their games except the final, and came 2nd overall.

The basketball team won half their games scoring 52 points during the day.

A special thanks to all the parent, teacher and adults who organise, attend, coach and support. We cannot do it without you.

Project Energize with Jonno - Large Ball Skills

In week 2 Jonno from Project Energize joined us for some large ball skills sessions. 

Room 19 really enjoyed consolidating the skills we have been learning in our PE Skills Sessions - throwing and catching.  

Jonno gave us some great tips for dribbling the ball, and we played some great games with the balls.  This will help lots of us with our winter sports teams that some of us are part of.

Thanks Jonno!

Ham East Lions Basketball Team

Dear Parents/Caregivers,

Basketball season begins this Friday 11th May.   

In order for your child to be a part of our basketball team, they need to have fees paid as well as have transport to and from the games provided by their parent /arranged transport with another parent whose child is in the Team. Thank you to those parents who have paid their fees already.

Your child's Coach is Boris and he will be running training sessions every Friday lunchtime 12.30 - 1.20. We also require more support with coaching as Boris is not available in June/July. Please contact Whaea Georgia if you can help in any way.

Players are being allocated a uniform that they must be responsible for. This means taking good care of it, washing it, bringing it to each game and returning it in amazing condition at the end of the season. If a uniform is lost you will be responsible for paying to replace it. Players need to make sure that they wear the uniform that has been allocated to them.  Please make sure that they bring a drink bottle and appropriate footwear (sport shoes) to each game as well as a jacket to keep warm.

Survival skills in water

As part of our 'Find your Field of Dreams' sponsored swimming lessons, all classes learned about water survival. Some completed this lesson in the school pool and others at HBHS. 
The instructors taught them how to get into huddles in the water to keep safe, how to fall safely in to deep water and how life jackets protect us.
