A note from Basketball Manawatu:

Entry will be via Arena 4 as per normal, so come a little earlier to make sure you can get across there on time.
The courts are set up for the game on Friday evening, please can you ensure the kids do not run up and down the stands – safety is important and last year we had a number of younger siblings hanging over the top rail, a massive fall if someone were to go over it.  Please could you ask parents to keep a good eye on their younger children and stay seated in the designated area.



The 2022 Junior Rugby Season is approaching.

As we do not offer Rugby as a sport for Central Normal School, I have sourced some information from some well known clubs around Palmerston North for you to check out if this is a sport you would like to involve your tamariki in.

Each Club offers a great club culture, Whanau friendly environment, focused on ensuring your tamariki have fun while learning and developing every aspect of the game.

The Manawatu Cricket Association are welcoming anyone who wants to play cricket to sign up with them this year as we are not putting in a team from Central Normal School.
