Sport is an integral part of school life at Stratford Primary School. We pride ourselves on having plenty of opportunities for the children both during and outside of classroom time. Over the winter months the children can be seen representing the school in hockey, netball and basketball. We then also work closely with the local clubs for the children who wish to play Soccer and rugby. During the school year there is various tournaments and events run, which we attend including golf days, both girls and boys cricket, rippa rugby and sevens rugby, tough guy/girl challenges and the police PCT. Additional to this we have various annual sports exchanges as well as our own school swimming, athletics, triathlon and cross country days.
Sport Taranaki have come to our school and offered various programmes over the years, the most recent ones to be implemented being badminton, golf and hockey. In Term Four, the whole school attend the local covered pool for approximately six lessons taken by qualified instructors and this is as no additional cost to the parent. As you can see sport is alive and well at SPS and we are working hard to ensure all levels and abilities are catered for so that everyone can see the enormous benefits sport and being physically active can provide.
