Over the weekend, two of our Yr 11 students, Kahlia Culwick and Holly Sheaff competed at the North Island Canoe Slalom Championships near Lake Waikaremoana.  Both girls had outstanding performances with Holly winning both the K1 and C1 Under 16 Womens categories and Kahlia coming a very close second.  The girls then teamed up and went on to win the Under 16 Mens C2 race.  This is one of the last preparation races before the National Secondary Schools Championships in April so it was great to see the girls performing so well.
