TERM 4 (2021)

Sport NZ have recently changed the restrictions around sport in Covid Level 2.  The big change is that numbers allowed at both indoor and outdoor gatherings is now reduced.  Unfortunately this has meant many sports have been cancelled for Term 4, or are running with many restrictions and without spectators.
Term 4 sports that have been cancelled: 
All Rippa Rugby, Touch Rugby for year 1&2 only, Cluster & WBOP Athletics, WBOP Tennis Comp, WBOP Orienteering, GoGirls Cricket, Primary school Cricket World Cup, Funky Fun days, Girls Playing Sport day, BOP Zone Athletics.
The good news:  We do intend to still hold our GSS in-school athletics days. However, these will unfortunately have to be without spectators.  So we do apologise, but no parents will be allowed to come and watch on athletics days due to Covid Level 2 restrictions.
Year 5&6 Athletics Competition Days - Tuesday 9th & Wednesday 10th November
Year 3&4 Athletics Learning Days - Tuesday 23rd & Wednesday 24th November
If anyone has any queries about any of our school sports, please feel free to contact me.
