Here at the Junior School we promote participation in sports, physical activity and fitness.
We are involved in the CrackerJack Kids programme that teaches not just the skills but the values and dispositions needed for participating in physical activity and sport.
The school participates in the local zone sports competition with other local Mangere-Otahuhu primary schools and are incredibly grateful to Counties Manukau Sports, who run all the field days, for their wonderful organisation and support!
We participate in Cricket, Softball, Touch, Rugby, League, Soccer, Cross Country and Athletics – parents are always welcome to help out on the day or come along and support the coaching of a team.
In addition to organising the Y5-6 team field days Manukau Counties Sport also supports the school with coaching and Have-a-Go day programmes.
We are very fortunate to have our own Campus swimming pool which we use during Term 1 from Week 2- 6 for Years 1-6 swimming sessions. In term 3 Years 3-6 attend the Field of Dreams swimming instruction programme at the Mangere indoor swimming pool (bus provided).
We also have school sports days …..
It’s about participating, having a go, trying your best, working in a team – and having some FUN!
