Sport forms an integral part of students’ personal development. Not only does it promote a healthy school-life balance, but it fosters teamwork, builds school spirit, and encourages persistence and commitment.

Sport in 2019

All students are encouraged to participate in sport. At primary level, they develop fundamental skills in a fun, yet challenging environment, before moving onto lower secondary and senior school where they may have the opportunity to represent the school in their chosen field. Swimming is an integral part of our Physical Education and Health programme. Our students attend the nearby Liz Van Welie Swim School from Years 1-8 and surf lifesaving at Mount Maunganui Surf Club in Year 9.

Our modern three-level sports complex takes pride of place at the heart of the campus overlooking the sports fields, and is equipped for a wide range of sports and includes a fitness centre and basketball court with viewing areas for up to 500 spectators.
