Year 5-6 Basketball World Cup 2021.
After an extensive 3 days of trials, and further lunch time practices our WB Breakers Year 5 & 6 team were ready for the Year 5/6 Basketball World Cup.  The team represented Puerto Rico on Friday 2nd July 2021.

The players were outstanding on the day.  The team got better and better with each game, their teamwork was exceptional with passing, rebounds and defense really shining through.  We were very proud of their 4 wins and 3 losses. 

A very special thanks to Sally Valois for her mahi on uniforms, score-bench and to Brooke Holmes for her wonderful coaching skills.  Finally a shout out to Karn H and Zac N. Karn, who despite having to to withdraw due to a broken finger, still came on the day to show his support, and Zac who gave his time on the day to cheer on the team.  They were both the most marvellous  team mascots/cheerleaders.

Team: (Left to right)  Rowan H, Dani R, Ayla T, Mason A, Toby R, Kealah K, Jackson M, Karn H, Junior N, Regan O'N, Declan V.
Funky Fun 21: Year 5 & 6.
On Tuesday our Year 5 & 6 Tamariki participated in a day of different sports at Trustpower Arena.  Sports included Floorball (an adapted indoor hockey game), Basketball,  Bucket-ball (An adapted Netball game), Football, Ninja Warrior timed obstacle course and dodgeball.

It was a wonderful opportunity and was so fantastic to see everyone enjoying themselves, getting active and trying some sports new to them.  Keep an eye out at the end of Term 3 on the sports notices, Floorball will be on offer in Term 4 as will Fast Football and Basketball, all of these sports the children tried at Funky Fun 21.

A massive thank you to all the parents who assisted with group supervision on the day and it was superb to see you all getting in on the action as well.  Finally without the assistance of Bay Venues and the Tu Manawa fund it would not be possible, so thank you!
Sports Uniforms.
We are still missing some sports uniforms from Ripper Rugby World Cup,  South Cluster Cross Country, and both Basketball World Cups.  Please can you go through your draws and return these by tommorrow.  
Player of the Day.
Henry and Tobias from our WB Kereru Year 1-2 Basketball Team.  Loving Basketball. 

Thats all from the sports desk this week. Best of luck to all for the last games of the term and have a wonderful school holidays.
