​​​​​​​Primary Cross Country

The future of cross country at Craighead was on display last week as 8 Craighead students made the annual pilgrimage to Waihi School to take on their difficult 3km course. The Waihi course is one that encompasses the best of cross country, with a range of water and jumps to navigate, compounding the exhaustion of the distance.

Once again our team were fantastic in their efforts with notable results in both races. Ruby Mahuika ran well in the Year 8 Girls race to achieve an outstanding 2nd place and with Georgia O’Sullivan (14th) Eve Andrews (16th) and Natalie Koster (17th), our athletes clustered well to take out the team placings. Fine runs in the Year 7 race by Lily Crosbie (4th) and Charlie Nichol (5th) and were complemented by a strong run by Neve Ball to come second in the teams race.

The full Craighead team:

Year 8: Eve Andrews, Natalie Koster, Ruby Mahuika, Georgia O’Sullivan, Jasmine Payne

Year 7: Lily Crosbie, Charlie Nichol, Neve Ball

Aoraki Cycling

On Tuesday 14th June, five students had the opportunity to attend the 2022 Aoraki School Cycling Championships at Levels International Motor Raceway.

All the hard training paid off with some awesome results with everyone finishing close to or on the podium.

Zoe Spillane was 1st in the over 16 ITT (individual time trial). In the Under 16 ITT (individual time trial), Olivia Ewing was 2nd & Briar Allan placed 3rd. 

In the Over 16 RR (road race) Zoe Spillane had an outstanding race and managed to take 1st once again. In the under 16 RR (road race), Olivia Ewing dominated and placed 1st and   Briar Allan placed 3rd. 

In the TTT (team time trial) we had two teams, Craighead 1 team placed 2nd against Timaru Boys High with a time of 7.41.13 and the other team was a composite team. The wind made it extremely hard but the girls kept pushing and didn’t give up. This day wasn’t possible without our team managers.

Special thanks to Jeff Allan & Craig Domigan. 


This Tuesday saw the end of the 2022 Timaru Secondary Schools Badminton Competition. This year has been another successful year for Craighead Badminton. We had a lot of new players sign up, taking our total number of teams from 7 last year up to 12 this year.

In the final week of play, we were competing in some big matches. While we did not win them all, we did still get some excellent results to finish off a great season.

Some of the key results were:

  • Junior CDS 3 won the Junior Girls Division. This team consisted of Honour Andrews, Islabelle Taylor, Ruby Gordon, and Annabelle Talbot. They had the assistance of Riley Pawsey helping out in the final as a substitute. Even more impressive with this being their first year playing!
  • Senior CDS 2 were runners-up in the Senior Girls B Grade Division. This team was made up of Skye Bowen, Camryn Porter, Pear Chantrasup, and Haruka Kato.
  • Senior CDS 6 won the Senior Girls C Grade Division. This team included Samantha Giddings, Mia Donaldson, Emma Campbell, Heather Miller, and Abby McLeod.

SISS Cycling

Over the weekend of 9-10 July, Olivia Ewing, Zoe Spillane and Isabella Inglis competed in the NZ South Island Cycling Champs at Ruapuna Raceway in Christchurch.                                                                                                On the first day the girls rode in the rainy weather with Olivia placing 5th in U15, Zoe 2nd in U17 and Isabella 9th in U20. On the second day the wind came up, but fortunately there was no rain. Olivia sprinted to 3rd in the U15 race and Zoe rode in a 3 person breakaway in the U17 race, sprinting to 3rd. Overall Craighead placed 12th equal in the total points out of 41 schools.                                                                                                                                        The weekend wouldn’t have been possible without our team manager, Ryan Spillane.
