SkyCity Mystics Positive Sideline Behaviour Competition

This term the Year 8 Sorority netball team participated in the SkyCity Mystics 'Positive Sideline Behaviour' competition. The task was to create a brief movie showing their thoughts about what positive sideline behaviour means to them. The team worked together with their coach Moses and managers (with some help from their teachers) to create their movie.

The Sorority team movie was a finalist along with Whangaparaoa College. Both movies were posted on the SkyCity Mystics Face Book page where voters had to vote for their favourite movie. In the end, with the support of lots of teachers, friends and families, the Sorority team came out on top and was selected as the winning movie.

Their amazing prize package included free tickets for the team to attend the SkyCity Mystics vs Mainland Tactix netball team at The Trusts Arena in Henderson on the 2nd July 2016. They received a $400 voucher for Andy's Burgers and Bar Restaurant (SkyCity) and an overnight stay in 10 rooms at SkyCity. Amazing! They even got to see the Warriors team at SkyCity!

Another highlight was that a couple of members of the team (Khaia and Taunese) got to meet the Mystics team in person. They delivered a speech to thank them for the prize and were allowed to present them with their new netball uniforms. Very lucky girls indeed!

On behalf of the team and school we would like to thank Sarah Brierly, the Mystics Netball Team and SkyCity for the awesome prizes! It was definitely a weekend to remember!
