Student Success!


Diving:
Isla McQ (Room 11) competed in the Diving NZ National Skills Testing & C/D Age competition held at Moana Pool from 25-27 June.  
 

Isla competed in the Level 1 Skills for 11 year olds and under. This involved her performing 5 dives at three different heights: Poolside, 3m and 1m. She came away with a bronze ribbon for Poolside, a silver ribbon for 3m, and a gold ribbon for her 1m event. The combination of these ribbon events earned her a silver medal. Great effort and great action shot too!
