PALs Netball Competition
This term the P.A.Ls leadership group organised a netball tournament for the Year 7 classes and the Year 8 classes. It was an outstanding competition and very successful. All the classes played fair and in good spirit. Each class had to organise their own team and the tournament was student led. The final winners were: Year 7: N1Year 8: R3They both did very well and showed great sportsmanship and commitment throughout the tournament. The scores from their final games were quite close with R3 beating H2 12-9 and N1 beating S1 14-5. The winning classes will receive a trophy made in the CSIS Digitech Room and some juicies and chocolate for the students to share.

"What does it take to be a champion? Desire, dedication, determination, concentration and the will to win." On Monday 1st July, South had two Korfball teams participating in the 2nd Canterbury Korfball Year 7 & 8 tournament of 2019. Having been the beaten finalist in the previous tournament, there was plenty of pressure to go one step further this time and bring home the trophy. Our tournament team was predominantly made up of kids who have never played competitive Korball before. If there were any nerves in these players, they certainly didn't let them show as they played wonderful Korfball throughout their pool. Unfortunately, a late draw held them out of the top 4 playoffs. In their 1 and only playoff game, the team scored a late goal to tie it up 2-2, finishing their tournament undefeated - a wonderful effort! The South A team came out of the gates on fire and only had one goal in mind - bringing the trophy back to CSI. We began our tournament brilliantly, beating a St Martins team 23-1. We continued our strong play throughout the remainder of our pool games and went into the playoffs as the top qualifier. Jumping straight into the semi final, we faced adversity for the first time all tournament. Within the first 4 minutes of the game, we found ourselves down 2-0, the first time we had been behind all day. However, our players showed wonderful grit and tenacity and came back to win 8-2. We were in the final, and ready to face off against our familiar foes, St Martins 1. The final was a match for the ages! We managed to jump out to an early 1-0 lead, however, St Martins soon drew level with us, bringing the score back to 1-1. After some wonderful defensive plays from both teams, we found ourselves in the final 2 minutes with the score locked up at 2-2. A late long range goal from Helen Woods gave us a narrow 3-2 lead with less than 1 minute to play. All members of the team showcased wonderful skills, abilities and calmness under pressure and we prevailed victorious 3-2. A huge congratulations to Helen Woods, Angus Sevier from the A team and Will Hull from our B team who impressed not only the spectators, but also the Korfball Canterbury selectors, making it into the Tournament team which comprised of 4 boys and 4 girls.
