Our juniors swim in our heated covered swimming pool. Yes, we are one of the very few schools in the Wellington area still running a school swimming pool.
Our seniors students travel to the local Wainuiomata Swimming complex where we use their instructors to teach stroke instruction and water safety.


At play and lunchtime breaks we have some agile teacher aides who lead and participate in games with our students. This is part of our values work and Positive Behaviour For Learning focus. Here students learn to win and lose appropriately and practise fair play.

2017 sees a Hockey team entered in the Lower Hutt competitions. We thank parents for their support with this team and wish the team well with their games.
