Recent Events

Chelsea Parlato performs with precision in the pool:

Year 11 student, Chelsea Parlato, was the only Manawatu College student who entered into events at the Manawatu InterSecondary Swimming Sports at the Freyberg Community Pool in Palmerston North last Saturday, March 14th.
Chelsea's performance was incredible and has earned her a spot in the Lower North Island championship, likely to be followed by the New Zealand Champs. Chelsea's results were:
 ~ 100m Breaststroke - 5th place;
 ~ 50m Breaststroke - 4th place;
 ~ 200m Breaststroke - 2nd place; and
 ~ 100m Individual Medley - 1st place!!
Congratulations on your fantastic performance, Chelsea and we wish you the very best for the Lower North Island competition.

Robertson take the lead in the Inter-House competition:

With two events completed for 2015, Robertson House have emerged as the overall leader of the Inter-House competition. While they only managed to finish in third place for the Inter-House Swimming Sports, Robertson had a commanding lead of nearly seven points after the Inter-House Athletics competition, giving them enough of a buffer to remain on top.
Morris House are in second place overall after finishing in second place for both the Swimming and Athletics competitions.
Allen House finished in fourth place for the Atheltics competition but their first place finish in the Swimming Sports gave them enough points to leap-frog Field House; which obviously means that Allen House and Field House are currently third and fourth on the competition leaderboard.
To see the points, check out the Inter-House Competition Leaderboard.

Inter-House Swimming Sports:

Wednesday February 25th proved to be a fantastic day for our annual Inter-House Swimming Sports competition. The competitive championship swimmers were in the pool from 8:00am, making an incredible start to an equally incredible day. New students to the College, particularly Jordyn Patterson and Tommaso Caralli, were literally making waves as they cut through the water to record some impressive results.
In the afternoon, the rest of the student body joined in, supporting their House swimmers in the 50m freestyle finals, then making their contribution in the 'fun' events and House relays. The results are still under wraps until tomorrow's Assembly, so watch this space!
As always, our thanks and gratitude to the Sports and PE departments for the immense amount of time and effort invested in both the Athletic and Swimming Sports. Both events were absolutely stellar and we have you guys to thank for that!

Inter-House Athletic Sports:

On Wednesday and Friday (February 11th and 13th) we had our annual Inter-House Athletic Sports competition. Overall, the event was incredibly successful, with massive numbers of students from each House participating. The results are still in the process of being tallied but we are proud to report that at least three event records have been broken:
  ~ Carla Whittaker - Intermediate Girls' Javelin;
 ~ Niwa Wilson - Intermediate Boys' 100m;
 ~ Shay Syme - Junior Boys' High Jump.
More news and the final results will be published when they are made available.
