Monrad Kickboxing Club.

Mon May 23 04:14pm

Kia ora e te whānau o Tirohanga


The students of Monrad Intermediate have a wonderful opportunity to take part in a new school Kickboxing Club.This club will be run once a week on a Monday from 3.30 pm to 4.30 pm at Jason Nicholsons’s Scorpion Thai Kickboxing Gym on 106 King St in Palmerston North.


It will cost each student $30 per term, and this will run through to the end of the year. Students will need to purchase their own mouthguard and handwraps, but gloves and shin guards will be provided for the training sessions. Unfortunately, due to unpaid sports fees costing our school a lot of money in recent years, we have adopted a policy that all fees must be paid prior to the competition starting, to ensure a spot in the club. Fees will need to be paid by May the 26th (next Friday). The first 10 students to sign up and pay fees will be the students chosen for the club for Term 2.


Start date: Monday 30th May.
