Festive spirit for athletics
Gisborne Girls’ High School students got into the festive spirit of their athletic sports day on the Rectory field this week.
Students dressed up in house colours and supported each other.
The 100-metre races were popular, with lots of students taking part either competitively or socially.
All field events were competitive, with displays of sporting spirit.
Highlight of the day for many was the class relays, where students surrounded the track and cheered on their classmates.
House chants created an atmosphere of school spirit in what head of sport Arna Majstrovic described as “a successful day for mana wahine” (women of strength).
