Week 8 Term Four

Sport Hawkes Bay on the "Akina Colour Shamozzle"

The success of the 'Akina Colour Shamozzle' has had a wider impact than just here at HGHS. The fact that this event was led by students for students - through the Female on the Move initiation - from planning, right through to delivery, is part of what makes this event a success. We hope that this event encourages other schools throughout New Zealand to think outside the box rather than just the 'traditional' type of sports.

Laptop Returns
