From The SidelineWITH FERG How good was it to see the Southern Steel netball team in the region last month? Not only the game in Queenstown against the Central Pulse, which they lost 71-52, but to see them commit to spending time in Wanaka and Alexandra in amongst many schools…

Confessions of a Queenstown Dad | April 2021

What I’ve noticed in Queenstown in the last 22 years is that kids actually haven’t changed that much. They still find fads to cling to for a temporary time. When I started teaching at Queenstown Primary School in 2000 it was chatter rings and Tamagotchi pets. Both of these things…
