Anahera Bridger (Year 12) represented Hawkes Bay at the New Zealand Marching Championships (early March) as part of the Buckingham Guards U16 Marching Team. Their qualifying match put them in the elite top 6 Championship grade. A huge achievement for any team in their first season marching in U16s. They competed against 11 other teams. Their Championship march saw them achieve an amazing 2nd Technical, 2nd Display and 2nd New Zealand Champion Team overall.
During the weekend of 21st March to 23rd March Year 9’s and some seniors will travel to Top Parish in Rotorua with Whaea Mere and Koka Winnifred. Up to 200 young people will participate.
