Our students have opportunities to participate in both team and individual sports. Being a part of the rural schools cluster we often join together with the other local schools for sporting events, taking turns to host and visit other schools. We also encourage our akonga to join club sports teams in Taihape such as the local rugby, football and netball clubs.
The effective promotion and organisation of school sport should reflect the needs of students and ensure that all students have the opportunity to:
participate to the highest level of their interest and ability
experience enjoyment and achievement
become competent and enthusiastic participants
practise fair play (in the widest interpretation of the term) in all situations
experience and manage competition.
