Waiheke High School Sport

Facebook:@Waihekehighschool Instagram:@waihekehighschool

We believe that sport gives our Waiheke High School students a chance to be fit, active and social within our school sporting codes and timetables.

For some students, it means participating in something new with friends or as individuals.

For others, it means training hard to excel in their sport to take their abilities further.

Either way, Waiheke High School aims to offer students options to enjoy sport in a recreational or competitive way - giving students those valuable life skills of discipline, sporting skills, commitment, a positive attitude and leadership.

We offer internal school sports competitions throughout the year, and also take teams and individuals over to Auckland to compete in central zone (years 7 and 8) and College Sport (years 9-13) one day tournaments and leagues.

sport goals for Waiheke High School

Sport can be a huge part of our students' lives. Sport is something that not only gives an athlete skills - it also gives them character. This character can be performance and relationship driven, and a young person can have skills for life from their experience with sport at school. Our goals at the school are simple:

1. Improve dialogue with sports clubs on the Island so as to ensure our students know what sport is on offer throughout the year

2. To review and, if appropriate, increase the number of sports that are offered at the school.

3. Develop student and parent coaches

4. Maintain the strong Year 7-8 sport participation levels.

5. Raise Years 9 - 13 participation in inter house and college sport tournaments and leagues

6. Ensure that there is a flow of communication to parents as well as students, so that everyone is aware of the sport opportunities which exist for our students.
