Bayfield Exchange

The Bayfield Exchange this year was awesome and all the students who took part presented themselves extremely well and showed great sportsmanship. This year we travelled away to Cromwell where we were billeted. This was an awesome experience that everyone enjoyed, even if some students felt a bit nervous prior.  Over the two days there was netball, basketball, chess, squash, rugby and badminton played. All games were played in good spirit and it was really great to see so many people supporting each sport on and off the fields/courts. Overall we sadly lost the shield 7-5 (we’ll get em next time) Michael and I handed the shield over to Bayfield. I would like to thank all the students and families that were involved in making this Exchange such a positive one.

Individual Sport Results were:

Netball Senior A - Win to Bayfield

Netball Senior B - Win to Bayfield

Netball Yr9/10 - Win to Bayfield

These Netball games were all very close and great to watch.

Rugby - Win to Waimate

Basketball Senior Girls - Win to Waimate

Basketball Senior Boys - Win to Bayfield

Basketball Junior Boys - Win to Bayfield

We must give a big thank you to all the staff who were part of the Exchange giving up their time to make it happen.


The Cromwell exchange was very successful getting to play in friendly but hard fought competition with the Cromwell students. This Year we had Senior Students hosted in Waimate while the Junior students travelled away to be hosted by Cromwell. I am proud of the Waimate students for making Cromwell feel very welcome to our school and town. Despite it being a bit chilly on the last day there was no stopping the enthusiasm and determination in games.  I heard nothing but positive things from both Waimate and Cromwell students, teachers and parents about the exchange. A big well done to Cromwell who won the overall exchange. To those who made it down to watch various games, thank you for taking the time to support us in sport. To the families that hosted Cromwell students we thank you for your support as without this we simply would not be able to hold this exchange.
