Canoe Racing Nationals and Oceania Champs

Claudia Rogers (Year 12) and Jess Nisbet (Year 13) competed at Canoe Racing New Zealand National Championships and Oceania Champs over the weekend at Lake Karapiro.


They combined with their team mates from Arawa Canoe Club to compete in the U18 K4 200 event where they did remarkably well to take out Gold.  Winning this event means they are now the National and Oceania champs.  A super result with half the crew from Papanui High School.

Canterbury Secondary School Show Jumping Championships – McLeans Island

On Wednesday we had two riders representing  Papanui High School at the Canterbury Secondary Schools’ Show Jumping Championships. Our riders represented Papanui well – with them being a part of a composite team with a Rolleston rider and, despite only having three riders instead of four in their team, finishing seventh out of 25 teams overall. Caitlin Shrimpton (pictured above) rode two good rounds at 105 cm, and Alyssa Harnett (pictured right) was also individually placed 1st and 3rd for her two rounds at 95 cm.
