Year 3 - 4 Basketball World Cup 2021.
Our WB Falcons Year 3 & 4 team represented Welcome Bay School and Sweden at the Year 3 & 4 Basketball World Cup on Friday 18th June.  The competition was high, however the students all gave 100% on the court.  The learnings were many and the team had a superb day.  Lots of tired tamariki at the end.  Special thanks to Sally Holten for her mahi on uniforms, score-bench and helping with the management of the team on the day. 
Team: Baylee C, Chester A, Connor F, Thomas K, Stevie-Rae H, Maia M, Zachery N, Victoria S, Jerome N, Samuel H, Elsie A. 
WBOP Cross Country
Special congratulations to Kalolaine T and Mason A who qualified at South Cluster Cross Country and go on to represent the cluster at the WBOP Cross Country Championships.  It was a stunning day and they both left nothing on the field racing against the top runners across the whole of the Western Bay of Plenty.  They both did us proud where they showed their Kea spirits and ran along side each other down the finishing shoot in support!  Kapai team!
For the first time Welcome Bay School was represented at the Gymnastic Academy Inter-regional Championship 2021.  Congratulations to Victoria Seymour who came away with second overall in the bronze division.

Thats all from the sports desk this week, have a wonderful weekend.
