The first stopover of our sport students who are on a sport tour was Auckland, where they had time to stroll around the city for a while and train for the next sport challenges. Some places they visited were Eden Park, the house of the Old Blacks, and the Sky Tower.
The trip started on the right foot, as we had excellent results in the first three matches, with triumphs in Rugby, Football and a great victory in Hockey (9-0). The swimming team, in turn, had the privilege of training in one of the most prestigious swimming pools in the world, where the students were lucky to share the pool with several members of the New Zealander team, saw them training and took some pictures with them.
In basket-ball, players began the match by showing much anxiety, but after a couple of minutes, they were solid again and could defeat the opponents. The volley-ball team, however, was not so lucky. Their nerves made them commit some mistakes and ended up losing the game. Nonetheless, winning is always a good start, but learning from your mistakes is even better.
We congratulate our sport students for the great performance they have shown till now and wish them the best of lucks in the next coming challenges.
