SI School Rowing: Top Girls School / 2nd Top School Overall

South Island Secondary School Rowing Champs Lake Ruataniwha 3-4 March Rangi Ruru Girls’ School Top Girls School / 2nd Top School Overall

Rangi Ruru has once again taken out the title of top Girls’ School at the South Island Secondary School Rowing Regatta at Lake Ruataniwha this weekend, also winning the Kate Strachan Memorial Cup for the Girl's Under-18 Eight, as they did in 2017.

Rangi’s rowers won a total of 6 gold, 2 silver and a bronze medal as well as coming second in the overall points competition, behind Christchurch Boys High School and ahead of Dunstan High School.

Director of Rowing at Rangi Ruru, Mark Cotham, says although this is a great result at the business end of the rowing season, the crews will not be taking anything for granted as they continue to focus on the Maadi Cup which takes place from the 19-24 March back in Twizel.

Howard Davis: Dennis Villeneuve’s Dune - A Brief History

So many elements of Herbert’s novel have since become tropes of popular SciFi that Villeneuve’s film sometimes seems deceptively derivative. What makes all this nonsense essential viewing is his astonishing visual sensibility. More>>


Howard Davis: Jill Trevelyan's Rita Angus

Although Angus has become one of Aotearoa’s best-loved painters, the story of her life remained little known and poorly understood before Jill Trevelyan's acclaimed and revelatory biography, which has been republished by Te Papa press. More>>
