    • 25/8/2021 – Update from CSW
      • Dear students, staff, family members, partners and supporters of College Sport Wellington, Firstly we want to thank you all for your patience and ongoing support of the government measures to get Covid-19 back under control.  At the same time, your support of College Sport Wellington and it’s decision making process is similarly appreciated.  We understand this is a frustrating time and hope we can soon provide longer term certainty. Having considered various scenarios and timeframes with the information currently available, we have determined the following for the remainder of Term Three: There will be no CSW competitions this weekend irrespective of Alert Level settings. CSW will not be offering regional tournaments next week (in lieu of the cancelled national Winter Tournament Week).  The lack of lead-in time and low likelihood of returning to Level 2 immediately means we will instead focus upon completion of the winter season and preparation for Term Four. In terms of completing the remainder of the winter season, these are the key principles we will follow in our planning: Winter Sports won’t go beyond Term 3. We will allow sufficient time for schools and students to train/prepare once they return to school, before competitions recommence.  Depending on the length of time away from school, this may be up to 2 weeks of ‘prepare to play’. We will work with schools to ensure safe delivery of sport at Level 2, including whatever new requirements may be advised by the Govt.  We are conscious there may be new/additional requirements which need to be assessed and understood. We will work with Regional Sports Partners and Councils to determine what facilities will be available for completion of the season We note the above factors will determine which competitions/grades can be completed and some may not resume. Any current upcoming events (beyond the lockdown period) remain on the calendar, but may need to be postponed, taking into account the other principles. Thanks for your patience and support as we work through this.  Hopefully at the end of the week we can gain some longer term certainty around the Alert Level timeframes, which will aid our planning/communications to you.  Our next planned update will be Friday evening. Kind Regards,

    • 18/8 College Sport activities will not proceed this weekend
      • Dear Newlands College Sports Community Below is a statement from College Sport today (18/8) about their decision regarding sporting activities for this weekend and the future: Dear students, staff, family members, partners and supporters of College Sport Wellington, Following yesterday’s Government announcement and Wellington’s elevation to Alert Level 4, the team at College Sport Wellington have been working hard to consider various scenarios and contingencies for the weeks ahead.  Clearly this is a very fluid situation and we will need to take one step at a time.  In addition to the Government’s ongoing updates, we naturally need to factor in the upcoming Winter Tournament Week and School Sport New Zealand’s decisions around that.  We believe that at the end of this initial three-day lockdown (due to expire Friday night) we will have a clearer picture on both fronts. At the same time, we very much appreciate the tight turnaround if even in the best case scenario, Wellington’s Alert Level is reduced for the weekend.  Even at Alert Level Two, schools and council facilities will need to have a number of measures in place with no preparation given the current Alert Level Four lockdown.  On that basis, and in line with a number of club sports, we have made the decision that no College Sport Wellington competitions will proceed this weekend – regardless of the Alert Level setting. Whether the games originally scheduled between today and Sunday are treated as ‘postponed’ or ‘cancelled’ will be determined following Friday’s announcements.  At that point we hope that the shape of the next few weeks will become clearer.  Our next stakeholder update will then follow in due course. We thank you for your ongoing support of secondary school sport and the wider COVID-19 measures.  

    • Indoor Bowls Success
      • Last Thursday our Indoor Bowls pairing of Keira Arnold and Sharanya Panda (Y12) played in the Regional Indoor Bowls Champs.
