Hats Off to our Heaton Athletics Team

Our Heaton Team run, jump and throw their way to success in Ashburton

This years Canterbury AIMS Athletics Championships were a huge success for our representative team. All students that took part should be extremely proud of their efforts, and the positive way in which they  represented our school community.

This event provided an opportunity for our students to measure their skills against the top athletes from a variety of Intermediate and Middle Schools across Canterbury. We are delighted to recognise the brilliant achievements of the whole Heaton team (70 pupils total).

A special congratulations however, must also go out to the following students identified below, who finished in the top three of their event(s). What an amazing achievement!

I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our parents, caregivers, and family members who came out to support the team, and our teachers (Miss Nattrass & Ms Green) for their great contributions. This event would not be possible without your help and dedication.
