PE/Sports at West Rolleston Primary School:
We love to offer a wide range of sports opportunities at West Rolleston and encourage our learners to give everything a go. We are lucky to partner with Selwyn Sports Trust who support us in providing fun and engaging opportunities at all age levels.
Our sports opportunities include activities that all learners are supported to participate in during class time, some that are optional and some where learners represent our school at local events and tournaments.
We fit as many whānau groups as we can into swimming lessons at the Selwyn Aquatic Centre each year.
The school and parent volunteers offer a huge range of sports including (but not limited to): Swimming, Cross Country, Athletics, Sports Spectaculars, Basketball, Triathlon and Duathlon opportunities, Netball, Hockey, Soccer, Rugby, Gymnastics, Korfball, Cricket, Tennis, Softball, Year 5-8 Weekly Winter sport options.
We appreciate the wonderful parent and teacher coaches volunteering to coach and provide sports opportunities. If you are keen to get involved in coaching or to provide a sports opportunity please be in touch as we are always keen to have more volunteers providing more opportunities.
