14 September 2017  Earlier in September Piper Gwyn (12KA) represented New Zealand at the Oceania and Commonwealth Weightlifting Champs on the Gold Coast.  She came 1st in Oceania and 2nd in the Commonwealth in the under 69kg female youth category.  Piper also broke her NZ youth record with a 91kg clean and jerk.  A fabulous achievement!


11 September 2017  Sacred Heart College's Senior A Netball Team placed 5th at the Lower North Island Secondary School Netball tournament held in New Plymouth last week.  This has secured them a spot to compete at the NZ Secondary School Netball Champs being held in Rotorua in week 2 of the October term break.


8 September 2017  Year 13 Sacred Heart College student, Pallas Potter, was awarded Softball New Zealand's Emerging Player award at its recent 2016-17 award ceremony.



17 August 2017  Year 10 JudyMay Lethaby (centre in photo) and team members represented New Zealand at the 2017 Go Kan Ryu World Cup earlier in August.  They are now the Karate 2017 GKR World Champions in the Junior Team Kata 3rd Kyu + (under 18 yrs) Division. An amazing effort, and the result of a lot of hard work.  Well done team!


National Samoan Speech Contest

7 August  Congratulations to Taualai Sola (12TB) for coming 3rd in the Year 12 category at the National Samoan Speech contest held in Christchurch on Friday 4 August.

Taualai's speech was on this year's Samoan language week theme: 'Ma'au i lou ofaga. Maua'a lou fa'asinomaga' which means to 'Keep your identity alive to thrive'.

The competition was fierce in the Year 12 category, especially between the top three speakers as there was only a point separating first from third. This was an amazing achievement for Taualai as she was the only representative from the Hutt Valley to compete in this year's speech contest.

Malo le tapena, malo le tauivi, ua i'u ma le manuia le tauvaga!
