We cannot submit a team without parental help. Teachers are already  spending hours after school at, Touch, Waterpolo, Netball, Cricket, Futsal, Ukulele, Kapahaka and Pasifika. They will also be covering, Gymnastics, Miniball, Rippa Rugby, Choir and Aerobics. There is only so many teachers to go around. So if you can supervise a team, especially if you are at all the games, please indicate that you can help. Training can be available if you are unsure of rules, positions, subbing etc.


Please complete the enrolment form by Friday 26 March. 

kind regards
