Touch is a high participation sport at Balmacewen Intermediate. In 2017 we had 9 teams competing in mixed, boys and girls grades. Most games are played at either 4.15pm or 5.15pm at the Kensington Oval during Terms 1 and 4 on a Thursday. Each game consists of two 13 minute halves.
Touch is run by the Otago Touch Association and they do put all draws on their website and any cancellations. If they do have to cancel they let the school know by 2pm and we advise the students.
If you have any questions please contact the teacher in charge: Alex Buttery - firstname.lastname@example.org.
If concerned about potential cancellation, you can check
1. Otago Touch facebook page
2. Otago Touch Website
3. Dunedin Cancellations FB page
4. Listen to the radio at 2pm
An email will be sent to team managers if cancelled, by 2pm. No email = touch is on.
Touch for November 15th:
A message from Otago Touch....
Unfortunately we will be postponing the Junior Module this week due to the teachers strike.
We would love to run the competition and let the kids play but we also want to support the teachers involved with Touch. Our competition would not possible without the incredible efforts teachers provide week in and week out organising teams, refereeing, etc, hence the Junior Module will be cancelled this week so affected teachers will not be burdened. Apologies on the late the notice.
