Request for Prizes

Dear Sir/Madam,
John Paul II High School is hosting a Science fair evening this year on the 5th July. It is an opportunity for the student’s parents and the rest of the community to come and see the student’s projects and be part of the awards ceremony. We are expected a large turnout to this event as it will include students from year 7 to year 10.
As such we are looking to raise some sponsorship for prizes that can be awarded to the students who are awarded first, second and third place in each age group category (Year 7, 8, 9, and 10). Any gifts/sponsorship received will get a special mention at the Science fair evening and will be advertised in the school newsletter,
In previous years, our top students have moved onto the West Coast Science fair and then onto the Canterbury event in which they have been very successful, so we would like to gather prizes that represent all of the hard work and effort students put into their work.
We would like to invite you to be part of this evening even if you are unable to contribute. If you can make any contributions, please contact myself at the school for more information.
Thank you for your time and for any contributions you do make. We are very grateful for all gifts received.

Yours faithfully

We are super proud of our boys who helped out the GHS 1st XIII in this win against Haeata.

A summary of our boys and their contribution to the match; Henry Gibson, George Gibson, Brett Rees (2 tries), Jordan Duggan (1 try), Jack Coleman (1 try), and Callum Donaldson (conversion).Rugby League - GHS vs Haeata Community Campus
On Wednesday 16th May we hosted Haeata Community Campus for yet another fantastic installment of the ‘Coast of Origin’ on a classic chilly and very wet at times West Coast evening. There was a buzz in the descent crowd that turned out at Wingham Park to cheer on these school boys and the noise created when the teams ran out of the tunnel was ecstatic!
Both teams came out with a hiss and roar to get the game going, some heavy tackles and great heads up football created some fantastic opportunities for both sides. The GHS team with a mix of JPII players had a lot of experience on our side which showed throughout the game and allowed for an early first try in the corner by George Rubbo, from then on out tries where coming thick and fast - Mason Hunt muscled over the line and George Rubbo added the extra two points, speeder Brett Rees (JPII student) slipped through some tackles to take a try, Tom Campbell planted down in the right corner set up brilliantly from an offloading Griffin Neame, and the final try of the half came from Jack Coleman (JPII student) with Jacob Lowe adding the two extra points. Haeata only managed a single try in the first, they had very limited possession and GHS were not giving the side an inch anywhere on the park. The speed in which we were playing the game started to catch up with Haeata at the end of the first and the half time break was welcomed by all. First half GHS 24 - Haeata 4.
The second half started with some unforced errors from our boys which could have easily let Haeata in for more points, however our outstanding defense made up for the errors earlier and again Haeata were only able to get in for a single try but also managed to convert. We took our time getting on the board in the second but when we did that opened the floodgates - Lance Wylie opened the scoring, Brett Rees slotted in for another this time a runaway putting him under the posts and Riley Pascoe converted, Jordan Duggan (JPII student) also showed off some fancy running, slipping through multiple tackles running in a 70m try and Griffin Neame converted, Jared Cutbush came off the bench strong with great runs and also muscled over for a hard fought try, Mason Hunt when in for the double and Callum Donaldson (JPII student) converted. Second half GHS 26 - Haeata 6
GHS showed they were out to really play and the good team trainings shone through, players were supporting each other fantastically, sending the ball through the hands to spread it out wide and the forwards definitely earned their worth with some big hit ups both in offence and defence. There were some great light touches from many players putting each other into gaps and the game flowed so well it seemed like this mixed team of GHS and JPII players had played together for years.
FULL TIME SCORE: GHS 50 - Haeata 10
Thank you to all those supporters who came out in chilly conditions, West Coast Rugby League for their great support of the game, the referees, Mrs Connolly for the excellent food, our Head Coach Chris Neame and Trainer Dean McGrath, and to our visiting side Coach Te and Haeata Community Campus. We always look forward to hosting this great fixture and are already looking forward to the 2019 clash!
