Sport and Physical Education
We encourage all our children to have a go in as many sports activities as they would like and our P.E. shed is filled with sports gear that is available at break times for the children to use. All our children participate in and enjoy the Kiwi Sports programme at school, which gives them an opportunity toplay a variety of sports and complete fun activities. Our Physical Education programme also includes athletics, cross country, gymnastics and swimming and children also get to compete in inter-schools competitions. Active participation in sport enables children to:
- improve their general health and wellbeing
- develop their skills and build self confidence
- develop balance, coordination, agility and flexibility
- learn social skills, teamwork, and sportsmanship by showing children how to be supportive, enjoy success, and accept disappointment
Our team sports are a real strength of our school and we have a large number of children participating in Hockey, Netball, Rugby and Soccer teams, played Friday night/Saturday during the winter months and miniball during Terms 1 and 4 on a Friday night.
