Sporting Involvement

Many of our sports teams are run with the assistance of parents and members of the public who care about sports. Sport is a great way to advance students’ personal growth, both through physical well-being and health, and mentally through self-discipline and involvement with a team who have shared goals. Students meet others whom they would not normally meet within their classroom setting and so increase their network of friendships. At Hutt Valley we have over 800 students playing regular competition sports, involving the assistance of well over 200 volunteers, including 50 teachers. We always need more help to run this large enterprise, which the Director of Sport Jacinta Keenan is thrilled to see continuing to grow. To say that a sports programme of this size is not possible without the support is a cliché, but it is absolutely true.

We need coaches, managers, and people willing to provide transport either on a regular basis or for occasional trips, members of the various Sports Committees and volunteers for fund-raising.

We have an active Archives group who preserve items of interest in the school’s history.
