The Big Four are highlights on the school calender every year. It is an opportunity for our tauira to compete against each other in a variety of sporting activities. Competitive tauira may go on to represent the school in these sports at regional and national level.
We can not offer sport without the support of our school community and highly appreciate everyone who gives up their time to coach, manage, transport and support our atheletes from the sideline.
As you can imagine the cost involved in sport is huge! Especially transport, as most of our teams must travel out of town to compete. We do apply for funding to help cover costs, teams do an enourmous amount of fundraising for tournaments and we are lucky to have some generous sponsorship from local businesses each year. We welcome new sponsors or generous donations anytime, just get in touch with the school if you are interested in finacially supporting our sports programmes.
