Our students are passionate about sport, and as a school we encourage every child to take part in a team sport. Our grounds are set up to help our children achieve with:

  • cricket and rugby fields
  • a mountain bike track
  • low ropes course
  • outdoor climbing equipment; and
  • our heated swimming pool.

Literally and metaphorically everyone at Waihi takes pride in pulling on the school jersey. In winter children have the option of playing rugby, hockey, netball, basketball and football, switching in summer to cricket, tennis, swimming and touch.

We also have the opportunity to provide more individual sports - such as skiing, sailing, athletics, road cycling, karate, and mountain biking.

If your child has a special interest, please do communicate with us so that we can endeavour to ensure that they can take part in whatever direction their physical passion lies.

Across the year, we take part in many fixtures with other preparatory schools from across New Zealand, challenging and growing our student’s abilities and character. Through these fixtures with other schools, our children achieve local and national representation in many sports.
