St Peter’s College offers a wide range of sports in which your son is able to participate in. It is our intention to ensure that as many boys as possible represent St Peter’s in their chosen sport. We want our boys to reap the wide-ranging benefits that sports provide. These include the obvious physical benefits right through to the sense of belonging boys have when being part of a team. As a school we are proud that we can offer sporting opportunities from our elite athletes, through to our social participation athletes.
St Peter’s College has a proud sporting tradition and is one of the leading secondary schools in Auckland for both participation and achievement. Over the years we have gained national titles in rugby, softball, athletics, and rowing. A number of our past and present students have gained regional and nationals honours. Our premier Rugby, Cricket, Basketball, Water polo, Football, Touch and Softball sides compete in the top Auckland Secondary School grades.
St Peter’s sporting success can be attributed to the dedication of a large number of highly motivated and passionate staff, parent helpers and sportsmen themselves. While we are fortunate to have such a large number of staff involved in coaching and managing teams, we also require parental assistance to ensure we can field teams for all boys who want to play sport for St Peter’s.
Being a member of a school sports team brings responsibility. Your son is required to:
- Attend all practices on time
- Attend meetings promptly
- Wear the correct SPC playing uniform
- Represent the school with pride and dignity
- Show respect to their coach, team members and opposition
- Once your son has entered into a sport, they are committed to that team for the entire season
We strongly encourage your son to make the most of the excellent sporting opportunities at St Peter’s College. Being involved in a sport will make your son’s time at school a more memorable one and will help provide a positive and lifelong attitude towards sport and recreation.
Please use these web pages as a guide to ensure he does not miss out of playing the sport of his choice. Your son needs to make sure he reads the daily notices, completes registrations on time and attends the trials as required.
If you have any questions regarding sport, please feel free to contact me. We look forward to your son having a long and enjoyable sporting relationship with St Peter’s College.
