Congratulations to Litiana Field (Year 11) who toured with the Australian School Girls hockey team in the school holidays. Here are some highlights of her trip:
"In the previous holidays, I was lucky enough to tour South Africa with the Australian School Girls Hockey Team. The tour started in Cape Town, where we played practice matches against Western Province before travelling to Durban, where we spent a few days on a game reserve getting up close and personal with the African wildlife. We then travelled to Pretoria to play our three test matches against the South African U18s team. Playing for our country was a new experience for us all and singing the national anthem before our games added to our nerves. We won the first match 2-0 and secured the series with our second win 3-1. But the intensity lifted on the last day and we finished the series with a 1-1 draw. The South African tour allowed us to gain international exposure to a different style of hockey while also gaining an amazing cultural experience." Litiana Field
