This is a suggested training programme to follow over the school holidays for those children who are hoping to make the school cross country team or would just like to do some extra training ready for the school cross country event. Training really does make a difference! You may be fit, but it is important to practise running for a sustained period to build up endurance. When it comes to the Zone and especially the Canterbury cross country you need to be fit enough to do a near sprint start and then be able to settle to a steadier pace. There is now less than a week between the school cross country and the zones. The top 6 runners in each year 5 and 6 race get selected to represent the school at the North Zone competition.
Wednesday 22nd July St Albans School cross country

Make sure you do a proper warm up and cool down.
During the lunch times this week Mr McKenzie organised a Kāhu basketball competition. The winning team from Kāhu was K17/18. They got to play against the teachers on Friday afternoon - there was a lot of fun, cheering and happiness .... and the TEACHERS won!
Next week it is football!
We are SO excited to see you back at school on Monday!
Please ensure you have organised these things
As we move to term two at school, please check your inbox in Seesaw each day.

The Canterbury Primary Schools' duathlon has now been cancelled. If it is possible they are hoping to run the event in term 4.
St Albans School is looking to send a team of 16 year 5 and 6 boys and girls to the Primary Schools Duathlon on Monday 23rd March at Ruapuna Raceway. It is a competitive event comprising of a 2km run, 6km bike and a 1km run. Due to the nature of the event parents will be required to transport their child and bike to and from Ruapuna Raceway and be responsible for their health and safety during the event. The children will need to be at the course prior to 9am and will be unable to collect their bike until the end of the final race at approximately 1pm. If your child is an able runner and cyclist and would like to be considered for the event they will need to complete an 'Expression of Interest' form and return it to Julie Worthington by Monday 2nd March. If your child didn't collect a form earlier in the week spare copies are available in K15.
If more than 4 children in each year/gender group express an interest in the event then we will look to hold a school trial to select the fasted athletes and more details will follow.
If you require any further information please see Julie Worthington or check out the dualthlon information on the Primary Sports Canterbury website: http://www.primarysportscanterbury.org.nz.
New connections made, old connections reignited, lots of teamwork and fun!
