Mackenzie College Year 7 & 8 boys’ touch team went through the South Canterbury Primary School competition unbeaten. Winning games over Craighead, Waimate, Geraldine boys, Geraldine girls and Mt Hutt. Our Year 9 & 10 mixed team qualified for the final after wins over Waitaki, Waimate and Mountainview. They claimed the silver medal after narrowly being beaten by St Kevins.
It was fantastic to see the growth in students’ skills, knowledge and understanding throughout the day and the belief that they could compete against the much bigger schools.
Thanks to Mrs Jordan and Mrs Cassie for organising the troops and running training sessions at lunchtime.
