MHJC is extremely proud to share Ashvin and Arvinth Sathy’s achievements at the 2019 Halberg Games, which were held from the 11th – 13th October, at Kings College, Otahuhu. The boys had a great time on the track with their wheelchair racing events and gained strong results in both Boccia and Table Tennis.
Ashvin participated in a thrilling Boccia final, winning the Boccia trophy. Arvinth managed to defeat Ashvin to win the trophy for Table Tennis – this too was a thrilling final!
The boys enjoyed the opportunity to meet Grant Elliot and worked on their ‘catching practice’ whilst chatting with him. Ashvin and Arvinth also met the ‘Sports and Recreation Minister’, Grant Robertson and Para Olympian medalists at the Opening Ceremony. MHJC staff member Matua Brent witnessed the boys in action and remarked, “Ashvin and Arvinth were like the ‘All Blacks’ of the Halberg Games!”
