What a great term of sports it has been here at Torbay! Ka pai to all of our tamariki for getting out there and playing sports. A big thank you to all of our coaches, managers and volunteers. All of your time and effort you put in is always greatly appreciated. Special mention to all the parents & caregivers who facilitate getting your children to their practices and games each week too!
Netball: The wet and cold mornings at Pinehurst haven’t stopped our netball teams. It has been great to see so many of our students on the court in action and enjoying themselves. Well done to our NNH teams who participated in a Year 6 field day last week. A special mention to our NNH Torbay 6/1 team who have qualified for Grade 1 in the competition and to our NNH Torbay 6/2 for finishing their grading undefeated. Good luck to all of our teams in their last round of games before the school holidays. Kidzplay will be restarting on July 30th. NNH will be returning on July 27th.
