Sports

Sports is an important part of our Waitakere culture. Students across all year levels take part in a comprehensive programme. They develop skills to participate in a wide range of individual and team sports, focusing on body movements, collaboration, problem solving and strategy. 

​Students also participate in school wide sports days which may include triathlons, cross country, and athletics days.

​Community involvement is crucial, many of our parents and experts within the wider community help coach our school and zone teams.

​In addition to a comprehensive P.E programme, we organise for our Year 7 and 8’s to represent the school in a wide range of Northwest Zone sports competitions. In the past these have included softball, swimming, orienteering, soccer, basketball, netball and cross country and athletics.

​PLAYBALL

Playball is a sport and movement programme for 2-8 year olds. Playball is an introduction to eight different sports, teaching the basic fundamentals of each one in a fun and friendly environment. The main objective of Playball is not to create superstars, rather to provide children with the opportunity to develop a hose of necessary social, educational and personal skills. By giving children competence in sport, they will develop fundamental life skills. From a child's perspective the most important element of the programme is fun! 

The sessions run from 3.15-4pm on Tuesday afternoons in the school hall and is no more than twelve children to 1 coach ratio. ​

Contact James at james@playball.co.nz for more information.
