Pacific Rim (interdoms)team sailing regatta 24th – 28th September


The pinnacle of the season where four New Zealand Teams battled it out against four Australian teams. The regatta was very close with only a couple of race results splitting 1st to 4th. Unfortunately for Kerikeri things did not go our way with only about a day and a half out of the three days sailing counting towards the results when ended up 4th. The sailors were really disappointed with the result but gained praise from Australian school for how they reacted and dealt with the problems they faced during the 3 days. Those who will still be part of the squad are already looking forward to next year and another chance to get back on top.

Winter Tournament Week August 29th – September 2nd

Four winter sporting teams travelled to various destinations around the North Island to enjoy and participate at winter tournament week. This is a chance to play against other schools outside of your weekly club games and judge how good your team is, experience a week away with your team mates (and a week off school) and in some cases see a part of New Zealand you may never get to visit again. Results as follows:

Mixed Hockey 9th at their tournament in Gisborne

Football Boys 7th at their tournament in Taupo

Football Girls 9th at their tournament in Rotorua

Netball 8th B Grade at their tournament in Papakura. Lisa Mather was selected for the UNISS B Grade tournament team – well done.

Kerikeri High School wishes to thank all coaches, managers, parent helpers and supporters who made this week possible.

T & G 1st XV versus Massey High School

After winning the Northland Co-Ed rugby title, the team travelled down to Massey High School on the North Shore on Tuesday 23rd August. The team knew it would be a close game after beating them in 2015. By half time we were down 13 – 6, but the boys dug deep to come back to 17-16 (winning) with five minutes to go. A simple miscommunication  gave the home side the chance they needed and they broke through our line to score, winning the game 23-17. Massey then went onto play Aorere the Auckland Co-Ed Champions, whom they drew with but lost out on representing the Blues at top schools 1st XV play-offs as Aorere scored the first try of the game giving them the win.
