But the "ends" relate to the sport at which she excels; indoor bowls.
"It is very tactical. There are 12 ends in a game so you are always thinking ahead and about the way the game could develop."
Aleisha's "on-green" abilities as a strategist carry over to management, and she is Roxburgh East Indoor Bowls Club captain.
She is a Central Otago junior indoor bowls singles champion, and was the Central Otago women's indoor bowls runner-up (2007).
When interviewed for Class Act, Aleisha was looking forward to competing at the New Zealand secondary schools bowls tournament in late August.
She is focusing on raising the profile of the club in the Roxburgh area, and there are now eight young players taking part in events.
Aleisha enjoys socialising through bowls, and with the Roxburgh Pioneer Generation Brass Band in which she plays E-flat tenor horn.
The band held 125th celebrations last year.
Aleisha is active in all areas of leadership at the close-knit school, and finds time in her busy music and sporting schedule to chair the school council and sit on several committees.

Role model: "I admire hard-working people who help others and persevere at whatever they are doing."
