Replacement of Championship T-shirts and Additional Merchandise Purchases

23 January 2021 9:00am

UPDATE: Thank you to everyone for your patience waiting for the t-shirt and rugby jersey delivery. These have now been mailed out and should be received next week. All orders made via schools have been posted to the school. Don’t forget to ask the sports co-ordinator for your merchandise when you are back. Some new orders for rugby jerseys and t-shirts have also been sent via the school address, to avoid rural delivery surcharges or to economise on postage. If there are any problems with your order please contact oe@nzssaa.org.nz.

NZSSAA Track, Field and Road Race Championships 2021 Date Change

12 January 2021 7:00pm

These championships were scheduled to be held in Inglewood on December 10-12 but provision was there to bring them a week earlier and back to our normal pattern of having them on the first Friday and the first weekend of December. This was the preference adopted at the NZSSAA AGM and subsequently accepted by School Sport NZ. They will now be held on December 3-5 in Inglewood.

By making this change we are avoiding a clash with the NZSS Touch Championships as occurred this year which will be of benefit to both sports and it does make it possible to attend the Australian All Schools Athletics Championships should COVID-19 travel restrictions allow for that.

Examinations are due to end on December 2 so it is possible a small number of athletes will have to be prepared to take their final exam at an alternative examination centre in Taranaki. Information on the possible available centres will be made available later in the year.

Note: Exams on December 2 include: L1 Social Studies (also offered digitally), L2 Dance, L3 Art History (also offered digitally), and Scholarship Earth & Space Science.
