The 2019 Secondary School Tournaments took place between September 2-7 at multiple venues around the country.
Our hockey, football and netball teams attended and came home with some great results.
Our 1st XI Hockey team travelled to Palmerston North for the Jenny Hair Cup and won the Plate Final with a fantastic 3-2 victory over Whanganui High School on the final day.

Five members of the team played their last game for Woodford House, so the result was a fantastic send-off for them.

The 1st XI Football went to Wellington for the Grant Jarvis Tournament, finishing in the top ten of a very strong tournament. This was a great result for the football girls who have put in a lot of work over the season.

Also in Wellington, our Senior Premier Netball team competed in the Lower North Island Secondary Schools Tournament. This was the first time since 2015 that the team has been in A Grade and they can be extremely proud of cementing their A Grade spot for 2020.
