Tough Competition at the Inter-Zone Tag Football Tournament

On March the 10th, our intermediate boys and girls teams competed at the Eastern Zone Tag Football tournament that was organised by the ARL (Auckland Rugby League).  The other teams were from 2  local schools, Sylvia Park School and Stanhope Road School - it was a day for all children to experience playing a fast growing summer sport in New Zealand.  The tournament was held at the Mt Wellington Warriors rugby league home grounds on Thompson Park.

Y7 & 8 boys & girls 1st place at the Eastern Zone tag football tournament
Two out of three Pt England teams won all of their games on the day that gave them the opportunity to compete at the Auckland Inter-Zone tournament on Thursday the 26th of March in Greenlane.

The Auckland championship tournament was really challenging for our teams.  Some of the boys and girls were a part of last year's Auckland Primary Tag Championship team as Year 5 & 6 students, so playing against mostly Year 8 players, was an experience for them to grow from. They played games against the winners of the West, Central, Harbour and South-East zones who were very good competitors - our final placings overall were 6th for the girls and 8th place for the boys team.   We're very proud of our teams' efforts and look forward to playing this game heaps more in Term 4.
