South Island Secondary Schools Rowing championships 

The rowers spent 3 days in Twizel from 13-15 March
competing vigorously in hope of qualifying for the Maadi
Cup team. They made 5 B finals and 5 A finals with the
Under 16 quad winning a bronze medal. Unfortunately
after naming the Maadi team, (Greta Hawke, Hailie
Wheeler, Tasman O’Sullivan, Reece Sanders, Stella
Cook, Ash Fleming, Molly Edwards, Aria Johnson)
Maadi has been cancelled. 

A big thank you for the coaches Kendal
Everest and Marewa Cryer for giving the students a
great season. 

Dragon Boating 

Congratulations to our dragon boaters for a fantastic regatta at the
Canterbury Secondary School Dragon Boat Championship. 

The students had a five week training period, before they took part in
this championship. They came 7th out of 11 teams for the 250 metre
sprints. They won the B Final for the 500 metre turning events. 

The students were wonderful ambassadors for Avonside Girls’ High
School. We are grateful to their coach Evan Roper, and the
assistance of ex-students Chloe Breen and Pearl Cardwell-Massie. 

The dragon boating team were Caitlin Anderson, Amber Ayrton,
Charlotte Barrett, Madison Breen, Jaimee Cartwright, Jenaya
Johnston, Jess Lyall, Ruby Simpson, Indiana Timms, Katie
Walker and Ellee Wills.
