    • College Sport Wellington Stakeholder Update – Sport at Alert Level 2, 13 August 2020
      • 13 Aug 2020
      • College Sport Wellington
      • Dear students, staff, family members, partners and supporters of College Sport Wellington, Following on from our update yesterday, College Sport Wellington can advise the below – pending any further Alert Level updates from the Government: Spectators at College Sport Wellington Competitions and Events – Not Permitted At Alert Level 2 from this Friday onwards At Alert Level 2, there is an increased emphasis upon contact tracing and crowd management at sporting events.  In particular, we are mindful of the 100 person gathering limit at venues.  In consultation with our member schools, council venues and partner sports organisations over the past 24 hours, it has become clear the prudent approach is to not permit spectators at secondary school events.  This ensures gatherings will be manageable under the 100 person limit, and that our students can continue to enjoy their sport. We therefore ask those not directly involved in playing, officiating or administering games, to respect this decision and assist us in ensuring the season can continue.  To be clear, this decision covers all College Sport Wellington competitions and events in the Wellington region, both indoors and outdoors.  We will naturally review this decision at appropriate intervals, and as further Government advice becomes available. As with everyone, we are hopeful of a safe and speedy return to Alert Level 1. Sport Specific Updates Today we can confirm the following updates for specific sports: The Thursday Badminton round is confirmed to proceed this afternoon (August 13) The Novice Grade Basketball games at St Pats Silverstream are confirmed to proceed this afternoon (August 13) This Friday nights’ Underwater Hockey round is cancelled.  Unfortunately the number of students present at the pools cannot be managed under the 100 person limit. At this stage, please assume all other events/competitions are proceeding until we advise otherwise.  For Friday, this includes Basketball, Badminton, Rugby and Football.  Naturally this is all pending further advice from the government on Alert Levels.  Looking further ahead, our intention is to provide a decision on weekend sport following the Government’s expected Friday update.  We are hopeful the timing of this decision is in line with our normal practices around rain-affected weekends. -Bryan Dickinson (Executive Director) The post College Sport Wellington Stakeholder Update – Sport at Alert Level 2, 13 August 2020 appeared first on College Sport Wellington.

It is important to note that there is currently no known community transmission of COVID-19 in New Zealand. The vast majority of adults, children and young people with symptoms consistent with COVID-19 will not have COVID-19. Symptoms of COVID-19 can include new onset or worsening of one or more of the following: Cough Fever Sore throat Runny nose Shortness of breath/difficulty breathing Temporary loss of smell Health’s information on who should get tested notes that people with any of the COVID-19 symptoms who are close contacts of confirmed cases, have recently travelled overseas, or been in contact with recent travellers, should get assessed. If anyone has symptoms but is unsure if they have been exposed to COVID-19, they should ring Healthline on 0800 358 5453 or their GP for advice. Over winter there are many other viruses about that can cause people to feel unwell and have symptoms similar to those of COVID-19. Some people with symptoms consistent with COVID-19 may be tested as part of Health’s ongoing surveillance to ensure that there is no community transmission in New Zealand. If they are not close contacts of confirmed cases, have not recently travelled overseas, or have not been in contact with recent travellers, then there is no need for them to self-isolate while awaiting the test result, and they can return to school once they are feeling well. If not recommended for testing, they will be able to return to school or their early learning service when they are feeling well and no longer displaying symptoms. Wallace Street roadworks update The current phase of the Wallace Street roadworks is due for completion by the end of the month. As long as the rain holds off, Wallace Street should be re-opened to through traffic on 1 July. Following this, however, works will need to get underway along Wallace Street, near Massey University’s entrance, to upgrade wastewater pipes. This will take place in off peak hours (9.00am-4.00pm) on weekdays and traffic will often be reduced to a single lane with Stop / Go control. This is likely to take two months to complete. What’s happening? Economists breakfast with Dr Allan Bollard On Thursday, Year 13 Economics students Sarah Bennett and Rachel Woolcott, attended a Cullen Breakfast at the Wellington Club. Speaking at this week’s breakfast was Dr Alan Bollard, who has held numerous senior positions in Government and interGovernmental agencies. Dr Bollard discussed the economic impact of the covid epidemic and then participated in a question and answer session.  Sarah said  “the range of angles in the topic discussed was thought provoking”. Rachel commented “it was a very interesting discussion and I enjoyed listening to his jokes and insight.”         Year 13 performance of ‘Girls like that’   Evan Placey’s Girls Like That is an ensemble play that explores the pressures young people face today in the face of advancing technologies. Year 13 Drama students produced and performed this play this week. The students are to be congratulated for their sophisticated performance which was an enduring piece of theatre, an achievement all the more impressive when considering that much of this production was conceived and developed during lockdown. Congratulations to all, and to Drama teacher Roger Mantel.       He Kākano  The He Kākano students have been engaged in a range of creative activities, cognitive thinking skills and maths throughout the week.      Winter in the garden The weather over the past few weeks has seen our horticulture students spend time on maintenance, cleaning and repairing tools including secateurs. They will be well prepared for winter pruning and work outside once the weather improves.    Instrumental & vocal lessons update If your Junior student is interested in taking instrumental / vocal lessons but has not yet enrolled, please download the form from the Student Hub and hand in or email the completed form to Fritz Wollner Lessons will be reorganised for Terms 3 and 4. If students have not been attending regularly, they need to see Mr Wollner as soon as possible to ensure they do not lose their spot. Achievements National Bridge Speech competition place secured Year 13 Amelia Smith qualified for a place in the National Bridge Speech competition following her success in the regional Chinese speech competition last week. Amelia will represent the North Island outside Auckland region in the competition, to be held at Victoria University on Sunday 2 August. At that event, each qualified candidate will need to present a speech, perform to demonstrate a skill and answer questions in Chinese. Finalists will represent New Zealand and compete with candidates from all over the world in October. We wish Amelia luck as she progresses through the competition. Sports Junior girls football For the first time in many years WHS has a junior girls football team out in competition. Their most recent game resulted in a very close 2-1 loss but the girls had fun and were very impressive despite some players not having very much experience. This team could not have gone ahead without the support of parents who helped with both transport and officiating.  Special thanks to Bea Gladding and Jennifer Argyle who are the coach/manager dream team who make this team possible. Below are some photos of the action and sideline support. Basketball Basketball is underway with all teams at WHS having played at least one game so far. Big thanks to Jason Reddish who is taking on the entire boys programme at school which includes four teams and doing a great job. Another big thanks to Nick Andrews who along with a parent is coaching the Senior girls team. Junior Boys play on a Tuesday and another junior team plays on a Thursday. All Senior teams play on Fridays, with the top boys and girls team playing at the ASB Centre. Below are some photos from the first junior basketball game. Boys 1st XI football The 1st XI played their first game of the season, bringing home a 5-1 victory against St Patrick’s Silverstream. Their next fixture is against Newlands College this coming weekend.

    • Advice to previous me

      • Wellington Scottish Athletics Club
      • Ben Bielski “It’s not that you’re bad at sport, it’s just that you lack some basic motor skills”  These words are not the words of advice I would give to a previous me looking to take up running, but words of advice given to me by a high school PE teacher watching me play basketball.
