Report: New Plymouth Boys’ High School Traditional Exchange
On Tuesday 2 May, Auckland Grammar School was well-represented in the traditional winter sports exchange with New Plymouth Boys’ High School, with students travelling down to Taranaki this year.
All teams played superbly and achieved the following results:
- 1st XI Football won 2-1
- 1st XI Hockey won 2-0
- 1st XV Rugby lost 27-24
- Cross Country lost
- Junior Basketball won 87-57
- Premier Basketball lost 89-86
- Senior Golf won 4.5-3.5
- Under 15 Rugby won 19-10
Congratulations to all students who represented the School as part of this annual exchange. The feedback about behaviours and attitudes was positive and the way they competed across all codes exemplified how the School approaches sport – performing to the final whistle, executing skills under pressure, competing through to the final whistle, white line mentality. Competitors on field and court, gentlemen off.
Special thanks to staff who travelled as coaches and managers as part of this overnight exchange. We look forward to hosting New Plymouth Boys’ High School in 2024.
