WPS 2020 Sports Overview

Our sports schedule provides an overview of key dates and events for the year. The schedule is subject to change and will be updated as required.

A note on inter school sports:

Please note that the inter school tournaments listed in this overview will be offered to students in 2020, however entry to each tournament is subject to having enough student interest to form a team, receiving permission forms back prior to the due dates and enough parent helpers to assist on the day.

In order to effectively train our teams and build their skills in preparation for inter school tournaments, this year we are looking for volunteers to train our teams for 5 weeks ahead of each tournament. If you are able to commit to a lunchtime training once a week in advance of an event listed below please email ashlee@waiheke.school.nz.
