What a fantastic afternoon we all had at Sunnybrae Normal School last Friday celebrating the opening of our new basketball court. Many celebrities turned up including our local MP and representatives from the NZ Women’s, Tall Blacks and Breakers.
There were speeches, student games, competitions and even some teachers and SNS Board members played against the ‘stars’. The ceremony ended with autographs being gathered from the guests before many smiling students returned to their classes.
Massive thanks must go to CEO, John Hunt of Harbour Basketball for his hard work in sourcing and contributing half of the funding, including a large donation from the Lion Foundation, and to Court Kings for building our awesome court.
A huge thank you to our wonderful hard-working Parent Teacher Association for fundraising for the courts. And, of course, thank you to all the parents and caregivers who supported this fundraising event.
Thanks also to the NZ Men and Women players who ran the event and joined in the fun, and our own teachers and parents who supported this exciting celebration. Our basketball court will be an absolute asset to our school and community. We are very thankful and feel so lucky to have this wonderful resource.
