Two international students were awarded the trophies for “The Most Promising Student in Visual Arts” at this year’s senior prize giving ceremony.

Both students have been praised by their teachers and fellow students for their ability and talent, and they hope to gain top grades in NCEA Art Levels 1 and 2, this year. Congratulations on your outstanding achievements, Sho and Theep.

Study and play rugby at St Bede’s College:

International students have been a part of rugby at St Bede’s College for a number of years. This year, a 13 year old joined us and is making an impact in his rugby team. Take a look at his video of our U13 team in action to see what playing rugby at St Bede’s is like. Although these junior boys take rugby seriously, you can see they are having a lot of fun.

St Bede’s U13 continued their winning ways by defeating Christchurch Football Club (arguably NZ’s oldest rugby club) at St Bede’s this morning. They prevent Christchurch from crossing their line and came out with a 35 point win. On the sideline were the parents of SBC player Yuta, who put on a fine performance with a fine individual burst to score under the posts.
