Junior Mixed Touch Season

As the Western Zone Touch competition was set up as a one-day tournament, we decided to enter our Junior Mixed Touch team into a seasonal competition as well. Therefore, we entered into the North Harbour competition for the season. Our games were every Tuesday at Hato Petera College in Northcote. The team was scheduled for four pool games over that period and came out of the round robin undefeated with 18 tries for and only 3 against. This placed us in good stead heading into the final vs Takapuna Grammar that was played on Tuesday, 24 November. Thanks to the…

Waitakere Composite Cricket Team

Over the last few weeks, we have had a group of boys involved in a Waitakere Composite Cricket team. As we have not had sufficient numbers to enter our own Rutherford College team this season, these boys have taken the opportunity to gel with a few others from Waitakere and Liston to compete in the Junior A T20 Central / West competition. Playing under the coaching of Ben Brain’s father Philip throughout this Term 4 season, the team has performed very well, finishing with a 2 – 2 record. The wins have been emphatic, and the losses have been very…

Junior Science Ant Investigation

Junior Science Ant Investigation

Over the past two weeks, several junior Science classes have been completing an ecology investigation into ant populations at Rutherford College.  NZ has over 40 species of ants, most of them introduced by humans.  The native ants play a significant role in our NZ ecosystems, including pollinating some plants and helping to disperse seeds of native trees. Students of 9GR, 9TL and 10JF conducted genuine scientific research to identify which ant species are found around the Rutherford College grounds, which foods they are attracted to and which microhabitats they are found in.  Each group of students chose a location around…

Self Defence and Jiu- Jitsu lessons with Kauan Gracie

Recently the Rutherford College Junior Girls have been given the opportunity to learn boxing, although today we tried something new and had the opportunity to do a 2-hour workshop learning about Jiu-Jitsu and self-defence. Kauan Gracie, a descendant of the founder of Gracie Jiu-Jitsu, and UFC (Ultimate Fighting Championship) is passionate about young girls, in particular, feeling safe and comfortable in their own bodies and believes Jiu-Jitsu is a great way to start. Kauan taught us the three key parts of Jiu-Jitsu and general safety: awareness, reflex, and reaction, along with a couple of simple yet effective self-defence moves that…

Peer Mentoring Graduation

The Peer Mentors have had a challenging year keeping continuity and building relationships with the year 9 students during a disruptive schooling year. None the less, they have successfully achieved this. Each peer mentoring group awarded year 9 students in their classes an award of excellence for their contribution to the program and the class over the year. These students, oblivious to them, then had to stand up in front of everyone and award the peer mentors their graduation certificates. The year 9 students were amazing and they spoke with confidence and praise for the program. This is always a…

Junior Girls Volleyball – Auckland Champs 2020

It was decided that we would take the junior girls volleyball team to compete in the Auckland Championships this year but not the boys. The girls just seemed more ready and the depth from both the Year 9 and Year 10 teams seemed good. As always, the first round of games were grading games. According to the seedings, we were supposed to lose more than we won in this first round. As it turns out, this was exactly what happened. To be honest, we should have won a few games that seemed to slip away from us in the final…
