Skills and Drills with the All Blacks at Government House

On Friday Anushka, Sanomiya, Theo and Joel spent the morning at Government House in Wellington doing a Skills and Drills session with Kieran Read, Jordie Barrett, Scott Barrett, Liam Coltman, Akira Ioane, Ngani Laumape, Damian McKenzie and Liam Squire from the All Blacks squad.

They were put into groups and rotated around a variety of different activities. Each activity was run by an All Black. Once they had finished the rotations they had lunch in the ballroom at Government House and looked around the Government House museum before returning to school.

Thank you to the Governor General Dame Patsy Reddy and the All Blacks for allowing us to spend the morning with them. We will never forget it.
