Kia ora, steadfast SunLive readers, and welcome to Sunday September 10, 2017.

Today winter will put in what is hopefully one last appearance, with a forecast high of only 12 degrees, and overnight low of five degrees.

Fresh westerlies and a chance of rain means today could be an indoors day for most. However, it's also the opening of the week-long Anchor AIMS Games , with SunLive endeavouring to bring you the best coverage.

In 14 years, the Anchor AIMS Games has gone from a small festival of sport, to what is now considered the international championships for intermediate and middle schools. Hand in hand with the growth has been the emergence of the Anchor AIMS Games as a pathway to sporting achievement and success.

Since its inception in 2004 the event has grown from 760 competitors representing 17 schools and four sporting codes to the 2017 Anchor AIMS Games embracing 10,139 competitors representing 303 schools from throughout New Zealand, Australia, Tonga and the Cook Islands.

SunLive will be live-streaming the games today, so be sure to check back in with the site later. For more information, visit the AIMS Games website.
