Our grounds are set up to help our children achieve in sport, with cricket, football and rugby fields, tennis and netball courts, a mountain bike track, a low ropes course, outdoor climbing equipment and our heated swimming pool. If your child has a particular interest, please do communicate with us so that we can endeavour to facilitate them participating in whatever direction thier physical passion lies.
Waihi students are passionate about sport, and as a school, we encourage every child to take part in a team sport. 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 rugby.
At Waihi we play our sport at many South Canterbury Sports Grounds – and some of these are not easy to find! We are in the process of putting together a list of the most frequently used grounds and a map of each so that our parents and the wider Waihi Family can come along and support our teams and will make available for download shortly.
Throughout Summer and Winter, Waihi children will be found competing across many sporting codes. The varying weekly sports draws will be uploaded here for your easy reference.
