On track to suc­ceed

Matamata Chronicle - - News -

Mata­mata Col­lege’s stu­dent of the week is a year 9 stu­dent who is tak­ing ad­van­tage of all the op­por­tu­ni­ties of­fered to her at Mata­mata Col­lege.

Tracey Thompson-Jack­son (Tainui) is a fine all-round stu­dent do­ing her best in the class­room and in ex­tracur­ric­u­lar ac­tiv­i­ties.

While she en­joys


her classes, she cites maths, drama, health and phys­i­cal ed­u­ca­tion as her favourite sub­jects.

Tracey is an out­stand­ing sportswoman and her de­ter- mi­na­tion to suc­ceed shines through when she com­petes. Win­ner of the over­all Mata­mata Col­lege Ju­nior Girls Ath­let­ics Cham­pi­onship ti­tle, Tracey backed this success up by win­ning the long jump, coming sec­ond in the 100m and third in the shot put at the Thames Val­ley Sec­ondary Schools Ath­let­ics event.

Sport plays a huge part in Tracey’s life and she is tri­alling for Net­ball 9A, plays touch and also wants to play bas­ket­ball for the school.

We look for­ward to watch­ing this young woman as she as­pires to be the best she can be.

Kia kaha Tracey.
