Girls' 10s Rugby Final
by Bernadette Shaw - Thursday, 21 August 2014, 9:47 AM

The Girls' 10s rugby team had a convincing win 65-48 over Lincoln yesterday in the final.
Outstanding performances by Terina Wanoa and Nia Toliver paved the way to victory, but all of the match-day squad played their part in sealing the win, the second in two years for the Burnside High School girls. Zahra Shahtahmasebi was again a hard-working captain and Mayu Shimizu a thorn in the Lincoln side with her ability to slip tackles.
The younger girls all contributed well, making the 2015 girls' rugby season something to look forward to. Congratulations!

Canterbury Secondary Schools Ski and Snowboard Champs
by John Creighton - Tuesday, 19 August 2014, 6:39 PM
Last Thursday 12 students competed in the Canterbury Secondary Schools Ski and Snowboard Champs, held at Mt Hutt. 
Just before race runs started at 10:30 am, a storm blew in shutting the mountain, leaving everybody in whiteout conditions, with high winds and poor vis. After a decent amount of power snow fell on the ski field, race runs could commence around 1:30 pm. 
A night stuck up the mountain was looking probable however, the road opened at 6:00 pm and everybody made it down safe and sound. 
Well done to all competitors, conditions were challenging! Top places went to: Juliette Phillipson (5th), Callum Douglas (6th), Clara Fergus (16th) and Louis Godfrey (20th). Results are in their respective categories entered.

For the first time in history, the Burnside High School 1st XV have defeated St Bedes at St Bedes!

Trailing 20 - 10 with just 15 minutes to go a stunning team effort sealed a win 27-20 at full time.

The boys now play this Saturday 23rd August at 2.45 against St Andrews College, at St Andrews for the Press Cup Plate, the winner of this will also earn a spot in the South Island Co-Ed Final.

Would be great to get as much support on Saturday as possible.
