AIMS Games 2017

image_5AIMS Games 2017 will be held from Sunday 10 September – Friday 15 September. Information is now available from the AIMS games website.  We will advise you of important dates about AIMS in the near future.  There is a parents meeting on Tuesday 11 April in the Cultural Centre at 5.30 pm.  Please contact Peter McAuley via email pmcauley@berkley.school.nz if you have any questions. 

These championships are held annually in Tauranga and is a fantastic opportunity for our sporting elite to challenge themselves against over 8000 other students representing nearly 300 schools in 25 sports, both team events and individual sports.

We have provided information for the events Berkley compete in below. The AIMS Games competition is for Year 7  and 8 students only.

Important information to note: Registrations for the AIMS competition close in June and further information will be sent home with your child as time gets closer.  All fees must be paid to Berkley and once registrations have closed, there will be no refunds. Fees for individuals are due by the end of Term 2 and team entries are due 15 August.  Parent help with this event is vital. A parent must be responsible for managing teams competing in individual events, and must provide their own transport to and from the event.  We will endeavour to provide all the assistance we can. Medical forms will be sent home with  your child and must be returned to school in order for us to register for the events.  IMG_5688
