HBHS Sports Update
The latest update from School Sport NZ has been received by schools, which outlines the protocols required now that gathering sizes have increased to 100.
These protocols include the ongoing requirements of health and hygiene procedures and contact tracing. To assist in this area, all spectators are prohibited from all practices, trial games until further notice. We understand this is disappointing, especially to parents/caregivers, but presently our priority is to allow our young sportsmen to resume 'preparing to play' safely.
The Waikato Secondary Schools' Sports Association has its own website, administered by Sport Waikato, that has the latest news for all sports. Their website is wsss.org.nz. Go to the 'Sports' to find your sporting code and the latest information about Covid 19 and your local WSS competition.
Thank you for your continued support.
