Our Premier Boy’s team will be playing a promotion/relegation game against Mt Roskill Grammar to decide who plays where.

Thank you to our amazing Head Coach – Tai Upoko and his lovely wife Caroline Upoko (Manager) for their ongoing support and passion for basketball at Springs.  We also welcome a couple of new coaches to the basketball family, Eric Jung and Benny Anthony Snr.  We have enough coaches, but unfortunately do not have any managers for the teams besides Caroline, so parents/caregivers if you are keen to help in this simple role, please contact our Sports Co-Ordinator Sami Va’auli – vaaulia@wsc.school.nz

ORIENTEERING :

Well done to all the students who competed in the AKSS Sprint Series.  The sprint series is a series of events that take place at various schools where competitors use a map to find points and complete the course in the shortest time possible. Early morning trainings/map sessions took place every Tuesday, which was run by the parents – Guy Cory-Wright and Mark Frater and assisted by their daughters – Anna Cory-Wright and Sylvie Frater.

From the Sprint Series, students had to qualify for the Sprint Finals which was to be held in early April at MacLeans College in the morning and at Unitec in the afternoon. Congratulations to the following who had qualified for the finals:

SNR GIRLS – Skylar Chapman-Peters
INT GIRLS – Sylvie Frater & Nina Quinn
JNR GIRLS – Juliet Frater & Andy Heathcote

Western Springs will also be represented at the North Island Secondary Schools Orienteering Champs in Levin from 27-29 April. The students competing will be :

We wish all the students good luck for all their events.  

A big thank you to the manager Bronwyn Rosie (Juliet and Sylvie Frater’s mum) for all the organisation and communication with the parents, school and students, but also to Dion Griffiths for giving up his time to help transport the students every Tuesday afternoon!

TENNIS

In term 1, Springs placed two teams in the North Harbour Zone competition. Our Senior Boys played in the A Grade and finished 4th overall, but the big story was our Springs Green team winning the C Grade effortlessly. Having finished undefeated after pool play (5 games), they easily defeated Rosmini 5-1 in the semi-final before wiping aside Westlake BHS in the grand-final 6-0.

Congratulations to the following players –

Harrison Cooke Rhys Davidson Noah Grimer Finn Johannessen Walt Lockhart Pranava Pavitran Waiarikinui Soto-Gilling.

Basketball Senior Premier Relegation Game

Tough game against Mt Roskill who coming into the game we knew very little about except that they have had two warm up games against two teams from the Top Premier Grade – Avondale and Pakuranga.  Mt Roskill beat Avondale by 30pts and they beat Pakuranga by 20pts.
The game was tight the whole way through. It could have gone either way. Mt Roskill had a larger crowd of supporters than Springs. The atmosphere was electric and the game was intense.
Mt Roskill led coming out of the gate. But Springs fought back to take the lead in the second quarter. End of the third quarter Mt Roskill were up by 3pts, Springs were behind going into the last quarter. The last quarter was the longest 10mins of my life. Springs were in foul trouble, two of our starters fouled out with one minute to go. Springs were in the lead by 4pts. They managed to hold the lead right until the very end where in the last 15 seconds the baby of the team, Riley Fong, intercepted a pass in by Mt Roskill as well as on the next pass in by Roskill. Riley stole the ball and held it to cement that win for us.
Top scorers – Thomas Clayton 30pts, Wodji Coulibaly 23pts, Te Rangi 14pts.
The best game I’ve watched in a long time!!
Thank you so much to our amazing boys and their super Head Coach.
HUGE thank you to the U15s Coach Eric for coming to help support Coach Tai.
Massive thank you to our amazing families for coming out to support our boys tonight.
Thank you to our legendary OG Prem Boys Anthony Kalolo and Jono Lee for coming to inspire the boys 😘😁😎
Last but not least and most importantly thank you to Pete and Sami for always being there for all of us.

THE ROYAL ASTRONOMICAL SOCIETY OF NEW ZEALAND SECONDARY SCHOOL COMPETITION

The Royal Astronomical Society of New Zealand (RASNZ) is promoting astronomy for NZ high school students who have an interest and passion for this science. In 2018 the Society is holding its annual conference in Christchurch from Friday 4th to Sunday 6th May. The normal conference registration for non-RASNZ members is around $200, however the Society is waiving this cost for up to ten (10) young astronomers who are keen to attend and find out more about our science. In addition, the cost of the Saturday night banquet, travel costs to/from the conference and accommodation (usually backpacker) for the Friday and Saturday nights are paid for.
Astronomers from throughout New Zealand and some from overseas will participate in this year’s conference. Many of these will be amateur astronomers. RASNZ is pleased that amateurs in New Zealand contribute so much to the strength of the Society – together with a core of professionals, mainly in our universities.
To find out more information, please see Kathryn Jenkin – jenkink@wsc.school.nz
