A game that was held in the indoor centre of Te Pai courts. Kelston Intermediate took 3 teams to the venue. It was new for a lot of whanau who never knew the game and were astonished to see how fast it was. At the end of the day our girls, boys and mixed team were placed third. A great result.
Mr Bloomfield, who is new to our school but a veteran on the cricket pitch, took a team of boys to represent Kelston in the Western Zone cricket. These players had never played club cricket and were eager to give it a go. They made the semis and lost by a few runs.
An experience for our students who attended the Western Zone orienteering held at Western Springs. Kelston Intermediate took four teams. They soon learnt how important our year 7 boys were placed in the top 5.

Western Zone Swimming
It was a splashing time for our swimming team who had the best results in years.
We took six athletes to the competition.
Prior to this event, we trialed our swimmers and chose athletes who could keep up with the racing times from 2019.
Our swimmers were all placed top 3 in their heats but it resulted in the fastest times for the finals.
We were placed third in the girl's freestyle and open medley race.

Let's Go Surfing
Students had a splashing time at Muriwai beach. This was a chance for them to experience surfing and learn about the ocean. For many of them it was their first time and an experience they won't forget.
Kelston Intermediate have been surfing three years in a row and continue to be part of this initiative as these skills are beneficial for the future.
