15 NORTHERN NEWS, DECEMBER 14, 2011 NEWS 4254356AA GATEWAY PROGRAMME Gateway is an exciting programme at Kerikeri High School. Over 75 senior students have taken advantage of the Gateway programme this year and have been placed with local businesses. The Gateway programme is for students to experience what it is like working in the industry they have chosen. This usually entails a six week minimum placement, working one day a week. Many of our students participate for a term, and some up to three terms. Students are required to achieve on average ten credits in either school or outside provider assessments that relate to the industry they are involved in. The students must also catch up on the work missed while at the placement, so it has quite a heavy commitment. The success of the placements is dependent on the willingness of both the business owners and the students -- the programme could not happen without this.

High school stars in Aust v NZ clash The Mid-Northern Rodeo will host the Australia v New Zealand High School Challenge on January 6-8 at Maungatapere, Whangarei. The highly competitive event showcases the best talent from both countries. Competitors must be high school students. Many of them also hold national titles. It is hoped Northland cowboy Klay Lanigan, from Taipa Area School will represent New Zea- land for another year but the team has yet to be selected. The rodeo starts on January 6 with saddle bronc riding, barrel racing and the bull ride. There is no gate charge for Friday night. Bucking bull stock is all North- land bred and the horses used for saddle bronc and bareback riding are proudly owned by the Mid- Northern Rodeo Club.

Kaikohe chukka day: Akaysha Zielinski learns the skills for polocrosse Polocrosse growing The first event of the season for the Kaikohe Polocrosse Club was held recently at the practice fields on Taheke Rd, just out of Kaikohe. There was a good turn- out with over 30 adults and about a dozen youngsters, including a strong contingent from Pouto. All levels of the game were on show from A grade down to complete beginners, and the enthusiasm of the sub juniors bodes well for the future of polocrosse in the region. Last weekend Kaikohe players travelled to Pouto for their carnival and the next action is at Otorohanga on Decem- ber 17 and 18. Practice continues most Saturdays at 11am except when the club plays away. New players are always welcome. Contact Wendy Zielinski (09) 405-3970 or 021- 352-271. Bay horses show talent The Richfields International Horse Trial was held in the last weekend of November and is one of the major events on the horse riding calendar. Many Northlanders journeyed to Waikato to test their skills in a very competitive and challenging compe- tition. Although it wasn't a Northland combination that won the pres- tigious championship, they were in the winnings throughout all levels with Northland horses well repres- ented in the ribbons. For years now some of the best eventing horses in the country have been produced by Waitangi Sport Horses and Richfields was an oppor- tunity to showcase just how success- ful the breeding programme is. The Waitangi horses shone throughout the grades with Wai- tangi Hotmail second and Waitangi Icon 14th in the Agri-Sea Pre- Novice championships. Second in the junior champion- ships was young jockey Stephanie Collins on Waitangi Slingshot. With the Puhinui International three-day event just days away, many Northland riders will now be putting the finishing touches to their training routines in prep- aration for the final and most important event of the spring calen- dar.
