Adopt a second team winners

Schoolchildren have the opportunity to be inspired by the world's best netballers at the New World Netball World Championships next week as winners of the "Adopt a second team" competition.

Coordinated by Auckland and Waitakere city councils, the competition encouraged school classes from year 4 to 8 to support a team other than the Silver Ferns, and learn more about both the team and their country by answering a number of questions and displaying them creatively on an A2 poster.

Winning classes have been allocated 30 tickets to one of their adopted team's pool matches at The Trusts Stadium in Waitakere. They include:

Pomaria Primary School - Cook Islands, Wales, Australia Western Heights Primary School - Fiji, Wales, Samoa Sunderland School and College - Scotland Ranui Primary School - Singapore Diocesan School - Barbados Nga Kakano Christian Reo Rua Kura - Singapore Henderson North - Jamaica, Singapore St Pauls - South Africa, Malaysia Lincoln Heights School - Trinidad and Tobago Marist School - Samoa, South Africa Kawa Kawa Primary School - Scotland, Barbados Birkdale Primary School - England Long Bay Primary School - England Pakuranga College Pegasus Unit - Malaysia St Ignatius Catholic School - Wales, Botswana Bayview Primary School - Malaysia, Malawi Bruce McLaren Intermediate - Malawi, Botwana Point England Primary School - Barbados Tamaki Intermediate - Cook Islands, Fiji Avondale Primary School - Scotland

The posters will be on display at The Trusts Stadium netball village during the championships.

Auckland and Waitakere city councils are proud to be local government partners of the New World Netball World Championships.
