Screen Shot 2015-05-14 at 12.13.33 pmWe are delighted to report further success by RSS students, this time in Inter-school equestrian. Abby and Bella I both excelled in this event! Bella won the dressage in her division and in fact first across all divisions (120 students) and Abby came a remarkable third in her division.
This meant that the RSS/Whakarongo team were first in the Dressage! And they were one of the only primary schools there competing against high schools and even tertiary students!
Bella was clear with no faults in both of her jumping rounds and Abby who wasn’t even planning to jump but challenged herself also did a great job. She had a lot of support from the crowd as was by far the smallest rider! A great future ahead Abby.
Well done to you.  Everyone shares in your success.  All the best with your next event girls and thanks for representing our school so positively!

Wow, congratulations boys for what has been an amazing season for you.  We can see why your coach Jason is so proud of you all.  Not only have you been tremendous ‘sports’ (playing fair and not getting ugly!) but you have responded to his coaching and been very focused. Tino pai rawa! All the best with your winter sports codes.
