Thanks to a successful application from the Tu Manawa fund, boxing classes will run for a year and are free to students.
For term 4, we are offering classes to anyone in Years 8-13 so that Year 8 students can get a taster of the classes before entering Year 9. We usually only offer it for Years 9-13 and will return to this in 2024.
They will be on a Monday at 3:30 pm at the Ōtepoti Boxing Club on Crawford St. Students can walk down the hill after school. They run for one hour and no gloves are needed as we have been able to purchase gloves through a grant. This starts on the first day back and will run until December 4th, excluding Labour Day.
We had a lot of positive feedback from students and this is how we were able to secure more funding so we hope students will take up the opportunity.
