Dear Parents, Whānau, and Caregivers
What an achievement by our Year 7-8 sports teams this week. Stratford participated in and superbly organised this years competition, which was held over Monday and Tuesday. This involved a number of schools from around the province as they competed in rugby, netball and football.
Stratford Primary School defeated Puketapu in the Burkhart Netball Trophy 43 – 0. In the WJ Linkhorn Cup our rugby team only conceded 32 points with a tally of 252 points for them over 4 games. The rugby final is on 18 September 2019 and at this stage it will be at Yarrows Stadium.
Our football team won 2 and lost 3 games. They ended up with third placing and show tremendous fighting spirit over the two days of competition.
A special thank you must go to the parents and staff who supported students in these three codes.
