Carisbrook Beckenham Sporting Exchange.

Today Carisbrook School from Dunedin visited for our annual Year 7 & 8 sporting exchange. We had a fabulous morning of competition, fun and spending time getting to know each other. We were so impressed with how welcoming and supportive our students were. In the basketball, when Beckham surged ahead, our children started up an enthusiastic chant to cheer on Carisbrook. A big thanks to the 6 Year 10 students from Cashmere High who refereed our games. The competition was close, with Beckenham excelling in basketball, Carisbrook in volleyball and in netball it was a very close game, with Carisbrook winning by 1 point. Having already won the trophy twice, it felt right that it headed down south with Carisbrook this afternoon. We are looking forward to the next time we meet in Dunedin, during our April 2016 camp.
