Sports Activities

Physical Education is an important part of our School's programme.  All children participate in regular PE lessons based on the Kiwi Sport programme, incorporating skills based learning with an emphasis on fair play.  Our school has a school wide daily fitness programme.

 

Children are involved in both summer and winter sports competitions.  They have the opportunity to represent St Mary's in Netball, Hockey, Mini ball, T-ball, Softball (Years 7 and 8), Basketball, Athletics, Orienteering,  Gymnastics, Touch, Rippa, Cross Country, Rugby, and Futsal.

Swimming is featured for all classes in blocks of lessons.  We have professional swim coaches take these lessons.  Swimming is held in term one for Years one to four, and in term 4 for Years five to eight.
