New Zealand Gymnastics Team Selection


Congratulations to Emma Logan (12WLA), who has been selected to represent New Zealand Gymnastics (competing at Level 10), at the 2018 Australian Gymnastics Championships in Melbourne in May.  


Emma is having extraordinary success with her sport, she is currently NZ Rhythmic Gymnastics National champion (Level 8).


In 2016 she also represented New Zealand, and brought home two medals from the Australian Nationals…a bronze, for placing third in her individual Clubs apparatus, and her team of four gymnasts came second overall winning a silver medal. 



New Senior Boys School Javelin Record Set


Last Friday, Jared Neighbours beat the PHS Senior Male Javelin Record, throwing 50.95m.  The last record was set by Michael Walters in 1994, with a throw of 47.63m.


Well done Jared.


Senior and Junior Korfball Teams

This term we had a large number of students keen to play Korfball. The games are organised through Canterbury Korfball, and held at the Bishopdale YMCA on Friday evenings. We entered a Junior and Senior team this season, where teams had a slow start trying to find their feet, to competing in final games this week. Both teams have developed their skills, and come together nicely with having the support of Mr Gill and Ms Hanlon at games, and external coaches coming in for morning trainings at school.  Kala Burgess of Yr 10 was invited to attend the Junior Development Team.

UC Education Secondary School Mud Run – Motukarara Raceway

Please note the date has now been changed to Sunday 17th June

For those of you that don’t know much about the Mud Run, it’s a 5km muddy obstacle course open to anyone, and all fitness abilities! Even teachers can take part… You can walk or run (or even crawl if you like), it’s all about dressing up, having a go, and having a messy good time!

13 April Sports 4


Sport Canterbury will be coming into school to promote the event at level assemblies in Week 3 of Term 2, and will be holding team registrations in the Gym at lunchtime on Monday 21st May.
