Sport

Plays an important role in the lives of young people

Sport plays an important role in the lives of young people and is part of a well rounded education, helping students to gain social, physical, and emotional skills. Whangamata Area School and the community of Whangamata are committed to offering a variety of quality opportunities to our young people. We offer a range of sports at school and enjoy positive relationships with a range of local clubs who facilitate sports in the community. As we are an Area School, a number of sports are administered by clubs at primary level, and the school during the secondary years.
